   Greetings from Tokyo, where I once again have a keyboard that I can barely make out. @--there that thing is!  Thanks, Kinko`s!
  Tomorrow I hit the fish market at 5:30 a.m.  Then it`s off to the Danny Long/Godzilla "Barefoot & Pregnant" national statue, with a stop at the Natalie Maynor national gardens and the Andrea Vine hot coffee & ambrosia machine.


   The NYC shooting of Patrick Dorismond (yes, another shooting of an unarmed man) has brought these terms into the press once again.  Here, the police officers tried to create/entice a crime, with tragic results.
