I am a regular recipient of the emailed Japan Times. Thank you so much for the good service to this retired professor. I teach English at a university in Fukuoka, and News Digest is the regular textbook for all of my classes. I recommend to students that they read the latest articles on the Internet.

The Nov. 20 front-page Kyodo article “23 prefectures reluctant to help Tohoku dispose of disaster debris” did not specify which prefectures ARE being cooperative in accepting the debris. It would be nice if there were references to related articles concerning these details. Maybe I am asking too much.

The opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are the writer’s own and do not necessarily reflect the policies of The Japan Times.
