| Yup, absolutely. Now there's a country with *opportunity.*
It's more like Japan today, I guess, with its all political idiots
dancing at the Diet, though there isn't much of an entertaining
factor here ;-(
Nor do we find any political figure with potential strength/leader-
ship. The whole country's been in a kind of deadlock ;-((
