Suicide in Japan

is for everyone. From the Times:
Japan’s agricultural minister, Toshikatsu Matsuoka, killed himself today, just hours before he was to face parliamentary questioning on a political funding scandal, government officials said.

He should have just gone forward and said that he didn't remember anything about any funding scandal, but he was sure it wasn't him. Oh wait, that only works in the States.
