New Blog: Half Rife

The Japanese often refer to people of mixed descent as “haafu” (half). Not half-Japanese, or half-something, just half. It’s as if they don’t realize that the word half means hanbun (half-of-something). Maybe I should go around referring to Japanese as jyuubun, literally ten parts of something or whole. My life is rife with this. Or is it my rife is life with this?
