Yakuza earthquake relief efforts

I could never prove it, but my co-worker said those free baseball tickets were from the local yakuza.

All we had to do was sit behind them, never ever acknowledge them, and cheer for the same team.

If there had been a catch (ah, no pun intended), I never found out about it.

Likewise, I can’t prove Jake Adelstein‘s recent news that the yakuza are quietly yet mindbogglingly charitable in helping with the earthquake relief efforts.

But you know what? I like the idea enough that I definitely don’t want to disprove it.
