The Rafu Shimpo and the columnist extended to me their apology.
A column contributed by P.S. appeared in the June 8th print edition of the Rafu Shimpo, a LA-based Japanese American community newspaper. The column contains ideas mis-attributed to me along with inaccurate facts, using my name. It also contains a photo taken by me published without my permission. I strongly protested the column, and both the Rafu Shimpo and the columnist extended to me their apology. The opinions expressed are solely those of the columnist who takes full responsibility as he clarifies in the forthcoming column. They do not by any means represent my opinions nor my position.
