Former Japanese finance minister Shoichi Nakagawa found dead

Shoichi Nakagawa, the former Japanese finance minister whose political career collapsed after he appeared incapably drunk at an international press conference, was found dead in his bed this morning beside packets of sleeping pills.

An initial examination revealed that Mr Nakagawa, 56, was suffering from circulatory disease and had traces of alcohol in his body. But given the humiliations which he suffered after the drunken debacle in Rome last February, there will be widespread speculation that he committed suicide.

Video of his performance at the press conference, during which he slurred his speech, misunderstood questions, and appeared to nod off, was broadcast across the world. Despite claiming to be suffering from the intoxicating effects of cough medicine, Mr Nakagawa resigned a few days later.

I accidentally OD'd on cough

I accidentally OD'd on cough medicine once. I forgot I had already taken the (large) amount that the doctor recommended, and I took another (large) amount. Then I had to go to the airport for a long flight. That was NO FUN. I can believe it might have been cough syrup (the first time).

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

One must first be "honorable" to do the honorable thing.
