Sending This Out To Mrs. Lucas:

“I want to be with you forever though the grasses of the whale-hunting sea come to shore but from time to time.”

                    — Nihon Shoki song, translated by Janine Beichman 

(Editor’s Note: Apparently this poem was left by hotel staff on our chief correspondent’s bed in Tokyo. His unprintable response is best translated as: “Damn those lousy whale hunting sea grasses!”)

  1. Forget the whale-hunting and go to a baseball game…
