It focuses a little on the Japanese origins then seems to get tangled up on what happened to it on the US. I think a more balanced focus is needed. The origins should come first, followed by a mention of the US mess but also what happened in other countries. The point is to make a factual, user submitted database. Not an uneven soapbox for the issues fans feel are important.
