HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT
I sincerely hope that things cool down with North Korea, and sharpish too. I don't know how many more days I can take of sabres rattling in my Japan Times and relations being at "boiling point" tensions "heating up" and cold wars turning "hot." If the JT scribes had been writing the first draft of English history, they would have had Alfred the Great burning the cakes well before Ethelred was Unready (or something - ed.)
Clearly, the Norks don't like Yanks flying B-52s and now B-2s around. Perhaps if some adults could take charge before the kids do some serious damage? Perhaps put the toys away before someone loses an eye on an arrow or gets his feet wet trying to turn back the tides of history? (or something - ed.)
Just Abiko is a lot closer to the Nork hot cakes than Austin, Texas.
Anyway, some links that mean the confectionaries are cooling, we hope (but you never know with those hotheads who spend all their money on the military...er, their hotheads, not our hotheads, obviously).
