Take Me To Your Leader
Sankei Biz has an interesting photo of Democratic Party of Japan Secretary General, Katsuya Okada, meeting with local officials from Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. Okada is among the group of Japanese central government officials. Fully suited up in anti-radiation protective gear they stand in stark contrast to the locals who are not. One of Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People of 2011," Katsunobu Sakurai, appears in the photo. Mayor of Miyagi Prefecture's Minami Soma City, Sakurai used YouTube to deliver a desperate plea for help on behalf of the municipality's citizens in a message that was heard around the world.
