No Shame in Bowing

Tsuyoshi Kusangi, a popular Japanese entertainer, had too much to drink and was arrested for dancing naked in a Tokyo park around 3 a.m. on April 23.

The next day, he appeared at a news conference and apologized for his behavior. “I drank a lot, and did not know what I was doing. As an adult, I did something shameful.” His apology also included a non-verbal component, as he bowed his head so that it nearly grazed the thick row of microphones arrayed in front of him.

Following Kusangi’s apology, the authorities dropped the charges, and he has returned to his hit television show.

Could this ever happen in America?
