Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



I walked on that toxic river.

Okay, I am a little slow on the news. I heard about this 50-mile benzene and nitrobenzene toxic slick in the Songhua River just last week and then for some reason I read about it a magazine today at the gym.

70% of China’s waterways are polluted and smog, it seems, kills 10’s of thousands of Chinese each year! Big business in China is taking a toll.

Beijing realizes something needs to be done but a strong ‘tree hugger’ movement is NOT one of the items on its ‘to-do’ or ‘let-happen’ list.

After the Harbin report, Beijing clamped down on future open and angry reports.

I remember walking on that river – kind of like Jesus, did. But, it was frozen solid at the time. And there was a large hole dug out and people were jumping in it to show on-lookers how stupid, I mean, how tough they were.

I wonder what temperature benzene and nitrobenzene freezes at.

If the Chinese wait long enough, maybe it will freeze and then they can just cut it up and carry it away.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
