Hither and Thither Dept.

A defamation suit against Kenzaburo Oe was thrown out of Japanese court, one originally leveled against Oe due to his assertion that the Japanese military was involved in the mass suicides of Okinawan civilians during WWII (something which had been substantiated by investigation).  The whole touchy subject of WWII in Japan has never been handled well, but it's gratifying to see progress whenever it happens.
