Why anyone is irritated by a little good-natured snooping by the rather odd boys and (I assume, I never checked under the hood, never was tempted to) girls in Fort Meade is beyond me. Snowden is an ignorant asshole as well as a traitor. He comes here first? Shutting down the preeminent site for the promotion of judo as a science, an art and a way of life is unimaginable in the modern world.
Plus I am pissed off that people here bring the entire family to the Happy Hour at the executive lounge. Crying babies and four tons of half-chewed nachos on the carpet don't go along with chilling with a glass of red at the end of a day auditing my local office ...
Didn't kick any taxis this trip though, no NJJ practice this week, Mr. Natural. The bus that plowed through the same crosswalk knocked a few people down, but kept going so fast I couldn't catch it even if I was tempted. (true story)
Back in Tokyo tomorrow ... leaving early. Much prefer superficial politeness, a saccharine smile ... and relative comfort for judo dogs like me.
Let's see if e-judo is still up after this. The girls and the boys that look like girls in Wuhan may not like this post.
