The Legend of Wooley Swamp

What ever happened to nuance? Jabberwocky is being spewed up by the left and right as they try to drag us into their Wonderlands. This blog charts a path out of this swamp of simple truths and false certainties. And from time to time, it'll be a place for more light-hearted musings.

Manga, Mangia, Manger...for a Month?

Today the Swamp simply wants to relay the story of odd recent events in Gifu, Japan. This is the story of Kiyoshi Ikeda:

"A man who stayed at a comic-book cafe in Gifu for over a month and ate there without paying was arrested Wednesday, police said.

The unemployed man, referring to himself as Kiyoshi Ikeda, 37, was arrested for fraud. He has reportedly admitted having stayed at the cafe intentionally.

"I ran out of money and I thought I'd stay there until I got kicked out," he was quoted as telling police."

The 34-day Diet of Kiyoshi

I will never feel guilty again for chilling just a tad longer in a café. In Berlin, that's an accepted art form, but elsewhere it was hitherto frowned upon. No más!
