The cause of the tsunami: Some one in Tokyo, unfortunately, its mayor deserves a pico-gram of sympathy. In a public interview he declared that the tsunami was a punishment from the God for greed; material, money and sex. He idolizes the past at age 79 forgot about many victims were older people. He is seamlessly running for his 4th term. Shintaro Ishihara is infamous for his racism and sexism, and proved himself a jerk once again.
He was re-elected but there were no serious contenders. The earth quake hindered any practical campaign. What kind of idiots voted for him?
