Dr. Hama's Imaginarium Delirium

Yes, it is shooting fish in a barrel but no, Dr. Hama Noriko is not Japan's Paul Krugman.

She is...well-nigh incomprehensible.

With all due respect (you know what is coming) Hama has challenged Fujiwara Masahiko in terms of all out self-indugent industrial-strength weird.

Note to the Washington Post Group: however wonderful the analysis Daniel Gross provides in his own habitat, he was lost in Japan.

That second link doesn't seem to be right.

Tee hee. According to the Slate link there, Prof. H also has a "gift for phrasing", wonder if the poor sub-editor who had to go through her original agrees.

Thanks for fixing that link - I think. It reads more like a computer-generated editorial mashup than a real text. All the expected words and phrases are there, in approximately the right order, but there's no meaning behind them.
