Marginalia on Japanese politics and society
I have to know: on clicking that link, did you indeed get treated to images of disconsolate females of Japanese ancestry?
It's the magic of automatic generation of "relevant" links.
No, it's not, it's a TIME photo gallery: "Self-injury in Japan. Photographer Kosuke Okahara locates a world of deep despair young Japanese women. Please note that this story contains some graphic imagery." http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1809157,00.html
Picture number 4's caption:"Tossed Away"Tissues used to wipe blood lay on the floor of a young woman's home. In a 2006 study conducted in Kanagawa prefecture, 14.6% of the female high school students surveyed said they had purposely injured themselves at least once with a knife or pointed object, while 6.3% said they had done so at least 10 times."Not as funny, I guess.
Calton - Herr Morén and RMilner both know.
