Star Sighting of the Week

Sho Kosugi

There was a tall, dark man ahead of me in line at the coffee house this morning. He paid with a credit for his muffin and cup a joe. The counter-jumper was just finishing up the transaction when he glanced at the name on the card. He nearly jumped out of his skin.

"Kosugi!" he exclaimed, eyes blazing. "Kosugi!" he repeated. Then he started bowing and scraping and spitting out Japanese phrases -- domo origato! domo!

Turns out Mr.Kosugi is big in Japan and in martial arts films. His latest, Return of the Ninja, is due out this year.

Little known fact: The Ninja of Japan, famed assissins, never actually succeeded in assisinating a single target, according to the magazine, Mental_Floss.
