This line from the AP story about the lack of babies being born has this disturbing line that really says it all:

In Japan, sales of adult diapers will exceed sales of baby diapers this year, according to Euromonitor International, a marketing research firm.

japanese‘Nuff said.

The story goes on to say that “For those who fear an overcrowded planet, this is good news. For the economy, not so good.”

Nice to see the AP catching on…at least a little.
