Residents of this northeastern Japan prefecture have been struggling with poor television service of late, with residents of the city of Katagami under particular difficulty when it comes to getting reception on the box.

I told her that I find it ironic that the federal government can tax us and then give the money to vulture capitalists so they can use the money to destroy our local community.
