...you can see forever. Well not quite these days, that persistent urban smog never does disipate enough even on brilliantly crisp winter days. Nevertheless one can see Mt. Fuji from here, even if the haze and poor resolving power of one's cell phone camera makes it seem more like a mirage than a looming presence.

I'm in disbelief that a train ad for Sony's new Playstation console (PSX) would go to print and hit the streets with such a glaring typo (in case it is hard to tell from the photo, it reads "Playstaion 2"). Unless I'm out of the loop and Sony has decided to rename its soon to be passe Playstation 2 to this new single "t" version.
