Clean us up, Scottie ...




Queues and rationing. Naoto Kan was right, it IS like the Second World War. Milk, rice, water, tofu, and toilet paper are all rationed to one per household. So you`ve gotta get to the supermarkets early. I arrived 15 minutes before opening time yesterday and I was still 30th in line. AND they`ve put up the price of water. Last week it was 98-120 Yen per 2 litre bottle. Today in the one shop that had any at all, it was 298 and 368.

Financial tip: Only `Scottie` loo paper and tissues seem to get getting through. They`re in most shops when the doors open but they go quickly. Buy shares in whoever owns that brand. You could really clean up...
