Comment: Working in Nissequogue, NY on Long Island, NY I met the grandson of one of the constitutional scholars who helped draft the Japanese constitution after World War II. I was struck by the amount of time, sitting there in their little house's servants kitchen, that is time that has passed and that constitution still unamendable, and how different national relations are as this wonderful interview shows.
