TOKYO Like good daughters anywhere, Mayumi and Kaori Asahara worry about their father's declining health. They are alarmed that he looks so thin and won't see a doctor. They fret that he refuses to wear the new clothes they gave him to replace his fraying old ones.
But they desperately need something back from their father too. They are seeking an explanation of why the man who taught them to cherish life, even that of an ant, could be a cult leader responsible for Japan's worst terrorist attack.

Done and done. It's a low volume list, as events warrant.

I'm sure I'll track them down as needed. As long as you're here, your chosen subject doesn't interest me, I'm afraid. Kindly remove me from your list.

"I was living in Japan when all this went down... this guy was running a cult that made the Jim Jones koolaid kids look pretty tame. "
I was , too . In fact , I'm still here . The usless police and THE SYSTEM should share the blame for that sarin attack . As usual , AFTER a deed is done , they ( the cops ) show up by the thousands .
"just slip the old b-tard some sarin in a fortune cookie ."
Why? Does he eat Chinese food?
No, it's all set the way it is.
What you said!
Well, you know - given how popular it is around here to blame an idea whenever someone says or does something stupid, I've no doubt that a ping list devoted to blaming some other idea for stupid things will prove pretty popular as well.
No, I didn't go to the hospital.
