Japan is going to start tracking their defense officials through hi-tech, James Bondish means—GPS-enabled phones. After a retired defense official admitted to playing hundreds of free rounds of golf (bought by a defense contractor) while on the job, officials of the officials have gotten upset, and decided that members of the defense ministry need to be accounted. For now, the compromise is that defense officials will carry special phones in times of emergency only, which seems like a fair compromise. But that's not stopping those crying over spilt golf.

One anonymous official went on record saying:

We're not children.

And then he totally didn't add:

But the baby leash is acceptable, because you can still golf in it. It's just tough to play with a clunky cellphone in your pocket.
