1. IMO Anthropologists should applaud this event.
2. IMO This and similar events have the potential to save the field of Anthropology from disgrace as a science.
3. Perhaps, some year, the Anthropology section of the National Academy of Sciences USA will induct a Japanese Anthropologist into its fold as an Associate member.
4. However, it is rumored that the USA and foreign inductees have already been agreed upon by the NAS-USA Anthropology section through the year 2018.
