Remember that South Carolina senator who went missing awhile back? The one who claimed that he went hiking along the Appalachian Trail, as he had been wont to do so?
Well, turns out, there are manga creators who do exactly that. Yoshito Usui went missing on Friday, and his wife and family asked police to start searching for the artist, best known for his irascible creation, Crayon Shin-chan. (Believe me, Shin-chan is worthy enough of his own post, so I'll get to the description of that little guy later this week.) But Usui hasn't come back and people fear there may be an accident.
I don't mean to make light of the situation, but it's weird that one of the best case scenarios might be that he's *exactly* like a South Carolina senator and has flown to Argentina to visit his mistress.
