Quote of the day:
Saito, at the suicide hotline, warned that group suicides should not be blown out of proportion, adding that they make up only two percent of all Japanese suicides.

"The vast majority of suicides in Japan are by hanging," he said. "But that's not dramatic, so it doesn't make the news."

Remember that the next time you see some news story here in the West that features somebody verbally wringing hir hands about Internet mediated suicide pacts.
