I got Sick Societies recently.  It's a fairly dry academic work, but it does an effective job of dispelling the idea that primitive societies are happier and more harmonious with nature or whatever, and it's also a nice recap of anthropological trends up to the mid 90s.

the race stuff only comes into play if you want to live there.  they love taking tourist money but they don't want anyone sticking around

and yeah there's zero reason to buy real estate there.  unlike most other places, japanese housing consistently depreciates (1980s aside) and it's customary to tear down whatever is there and build your own house (which will then begin depreciating)

we just watched the first few seasons, 60 days in is incredible.  so many characters.  I still think often of the marine guy getting out, immediately cracking open a white monster, taking a sip and saying "that's the greatest taste in the world"

I've been reading Dubliners little by little recently.  It's a lot more approachable than I thought it would be.  Maybe it's time to take another crack at Ulysses.

I have my secretary print out relevant web pages, and I dictate my responses to her

What's going on in NYC? I saw some headline about the National Guard being deployed in the subway. Is there a crime wave or something?

Just the usual boomers getting worked up about a "crime wave" (which is nowhere to be seen statistically but people do occasionally get mugged or pushed onto the tracks (fix: don't stand at the edge of the platform)) and instead of embarking on any kind of long term approach, the governor just picked up the National Guard hammer, which only served to make everyone more on edge and made the whole city look bad.
