Auction Internment Items Saved by George Takei Find New Home - NBC News.com

My article for NBC News Asian America
"The museum had always been quietly working behind the scenes to support the community's efforts to try to get the artifacts," JANM President and CEO Greg Kimura told NBC News. "When it became clear the environment had been poisoned [by the controversy], the museum had to take a principal role. The big fear was that those artifacts might go to a university or an encyclopedic institution without a direct tie to the [Japanese-American] community."

Japanese PM Slammed During US Visit on Comfort Women Issue - NBC News.com

My article for NBC News Asian America
"In yesterday's speech, Prime Minister Abe referred to 'miracles of history' and 'hope.'" Rep. Mike Honda told NBC News. "He had his own chance to make a 'miracle of history' and give 'hope' to the surviving comfort women by simply admitting the Japanese Imperial Army's responsibility and offering a full, unequivocal apology. Instead, he skirted the issue, making vague references to actions against other Asian nations."
