The April 15 Roger Pulvers article “It was 40 (very different) years ago today . . .” was quite admirable and impressive. The analysis and comparison, all based on the truth, were very intriguing and persuasive. It helped me when I was down in the dumps after the re-election of Shintaro Ishihara. It gave us a good opportunity to talk about the arrogant Tokyo governor. Thank you very much.
