Mr. Noda has a blog and it’s being translated into English. I wonder how long it will last. Any bets? (Original Japanese is here.) Mouse-tip to VOA reporter Steve Herman for the link.

Hello to all the Japanese people. I am Yoshihiko Noda, appointed Prime Minister recently. Taking a lesson from some of the prime ministers who preceded me, I have decided to launch this blog in order to convey to you, the public, the job performance of the Noda Cabinet.
