In Japan, there have been no (credible) reports of looting... This is beyond impressive and I will let that fact stand for itself. Today I drove past the Japanese Embassy in DC, there are no banners, no protesters, no signs. Just a simple collection of flowers and candles against one of the building's walls and the flag at half mast... They are focusing on recovery and rescue, nothing else. I know I'm harping on a specific issue, but in my opinion, its a good measure of the reaction to a disaster.
*not going to backpedal, a lot. - I really hope people don't miss the point of this post, if anything its intended to be a compliment to the Japanese people, nothing more.
