VIEWS FROM THE STREET

Tokyo: If you were stuck underground like the Chilean miners, what's the first thing you would ask to be sent down the chute?

I'd like to be sent some Clive Barker novels because I'd really need to read something, and his books are imaginative, so they would keep my mind off things.

I'd want something that kept me from going berserk down there. A karaoke machine may pass the time — we could all sing together.

I'd like a crate of IPA (India Pale Ale) from the U.S. I used to think it was terrible but I discovered there are a lot of quality products from there and I'd like to try more.

I'd really need to contact my family to let them know how I was, so some sort of mobile device would be great so that I could speak to them.

I'd like to be sent a CD of Damian Marley. I love his music, and whenever I am stuck in a bad place, that's what I listen to.

There would be so much time, so I think I would want something to pass the days — either a PlayStation Portable or a newspaper delivered every morning.
