Power Down

The power down which Tokyo citizens have been threatened of high likelihood of experiencing this summer due to the shortage of the supply caused by suspension of nuclear power plant's operations happened in North-east America and some part of Canada.

Modern countries seem to be likely to share seeds of the same trouble..........wish they'll be OK soon.

And the cultural difference I felt is those words

New York Gov. George Pataki said. "People are responding the way they should," "We can look at each other with tremendous pride."
Bush thanks citizens for 'proper and calm response'

I cannot imagine Mr. Koizumi, PM of shy Japanese would talk to us like this and such word is captured by any Japanese newspaper header.
