There was a Japanese restaurant across the street from my father's store on First Avenue, and I remember it because of the music that kind of blared out, and it was the same song over and over again. It was a Japanese, I suspect a popular song. And all of a sudden, it was quiet. And then I realized, well, they, they had to leave. [Interruption] It was wrong. I was angry. I was angry at the government, the president, and I was just very angry because it was so wrong. I just couldn't... I mean, it was, for a democracy, this was just unbelievable. So, yeah, I thought it was just horrible.
