In Japan recently, a politician giving a speech at a sumo exhibition match in Kyoto collapsed. Women (as it turns out, nurses) rushed to the ring and gave the man CPR. Since the sumo ring is sacred, someone in the audience shouted for the women to leave and so some flustered fellow on the microphone started to repeat the statement. Fortunately, despite the idiocy, the CPR worked and the man survived the ordeal. The incident comes in the wake of sexual harrassment scandals--in particular, a case where a politician came on to a female reporter very forcefully.
