Default Only in Japan #14: Disgraced Toyota CEO Edition

Akio Toyoda was criticized in Japan after failing to bow deeply enough during his first Toyota recall apology. Experts think the second bow was just deep enough to express regret without accepting legal responsibility for the crisis. -via Jalopnik

And this is how a serious failure is accepted in Japan... short of seppuku anyway.

In the fallout, the pie chart changes again a little; regardless of gov. inquiry. It's just the nature of the game. I don't feel bad for Toyota, or the rest one bit. That said, I don't get joy for the folly of their company. I still don't think that it's a mechanical failure of the accelerator... It's also going to be interesting to see the industry wide causality of the steering column recall in the Camry.
