Re: Japanese Ethnocentricity; American Jobs

They had this program on TV about this American whose Japanese-born wife taught Americans how to place the media for pearls in the fresh water clams of Tennessee to make American-grown pearls. Some visiting Japanese were outraged. They also said that these pearls would not sell in Japan as they had been processed by Amer-e-kee.

[James Fulford replies: I looked it up. This is the Latendresse family business. The late John Latendresse, a former American soldier, who married Chessy Latendresse when he was stationed in Japan years ago, created an all-American pearl farm in Tennessee.

This shows, once again, that Americans can learn to do anything that foreigners can do. And it`s not surprising that the Japanese are unwilling to "buy American."]
