This Odysseanic waxing draws us back to the Land of the Rising Sun—Japan. It is my responsibility as a journalist and intelligence professional to make sure that at least some SOBs on this rock are informed. Two years ago, the Japan Times published an article about guns in Japan. It’s not any more dated now than it was then. And I’ve been going through older—yet still relevant—stuff published in or about Japan in an effort to clear some stuff up regarding what you read versus what is. So, with that, I’m going to go on ahead and sort out some of the wheat from the chaff.
First, let me get this off my chest: I’m not sure why anyone who doesn’t know what the hell they are talking about—from primary sources or personal experiences (as primary sources)—would publish anything. Anything at all. Without that, what you write is just opinion. Conjecture. Tripe. BS. And that’s exactly what I’m hitting up today. However, the word I would use to describe what I just read would be nothing quite as heavy as those descriptors above. Nope. The only one word that comes to mind with this one: comedy.
