“Phoning it in” is an insult to phones

The dear doctor sadly has not been dropped by the Japan Times, but instead he has had a lazy article posted under “The Foreign Element” tag, for some reason, although there is little evidence of foreigners in the article. He seems to have spent more effort in getting Jeff Kingston’s passing mention of his book into his Wikipedia entry than he has on the JT article, yet he seems to have missed a real review of his tome. I quite enjoyed the closing sentence:

He may no longer be living in the land of the brokenhearted, but I suspect the disorder is not so easily cured.

I can imagine him writing a blog entry on how unfair this apologist has been, playing the man, not the ball, an event I look forward to.

    Yeah I’ve noticed it too, though don’t expect JP to return back to regular blog activity and it’s glory 2000s days. Sadly the heyday of J-blogs/forums are long gone, Nowadays everything’s geared toward SNS & reddit
