A Town of Death

Japan's new trade minister Yoshio Hachiro has resigned, after just eight days in office, followingtwo separate incidents where comments he made were deemed to be inappropriate and insensitive.

Yoshio Hachiro, 63, announced his departure at a news conference late on Saturday, apologizing repeatedly for calling evacuated area around the striken Fukushima nuclear power plant "a town of death."

What's worse, Japanese media reported that Hachiro had attempted to rub up against the journalist saying "I'll give you radiation," after the visit to the Fukushima plant on Thursday.

What a stupid gaffe and behavior!!
