and while I know the PG had the whole "Next Page" devoted to him last week, I still wonder why he has been covered so much more outside of Pittsburgh than here. I wonder how many graduates his age from Pittsburgh Public Schools are fluent in Japanese and successful in any field in Japan. I think it would be a story if he were over there in most any profession, let alone making international news. His alma mater: Perry Traditional Academy, will be in the news for days because of a wayward teacher. I really think he deserves as much coverage.
