Masao Yoshida: Boss of Fukushima Nuclear Plant
Masao Yoshida showed exemplary leadership which led to his death from cancer. He deserves our utmost respect for his devotion to duty and self sacrifice. I cannot say the same of his cowardly bosses. It is a pity the guys like him do not run the country. The Japanese deserve better leaders at the top.
Of course I don't know if I am right about this but I don't believe any of our top leaders would be willing to sacrifice themselves like Mr. Yoshida for this nation. To me they see themselves as so talented and indispensable that they must stay alive to continue to lead and save this place. This is a fatal delusion which I hope we never get tested.
