Okumura Jun over at GlobalTalk 21 often has issues with the BBC.
I wonder how he will respond to Chris Hogg's piece on consumption of whale meat and whaling from a Japanese perspective.
I wish Mr. Hogg well--the anti-whaling folks tend to rather vocal, maniacal and persistent.
Whilst on the subject, it is worthwhile to take a look at the illustration accompanying this article and the "a-pox-on-both-your-houses" view of 2004's "Australian Humanist of the Year".
The Paul Sheehan piece is particularly interesting. The article begins with a very detailed look at the ecology of the southwestern Pacific humpback population on its first page--then careens off in a completely different direction on its second.
It is hard to believe the two pages are by the same author, much less that they are two parts of a single essay.
