Speaking of the Olympics

 A 79-year-old man in Tokyo who was evicted in 1964 to make way for the Olympic stadium will be evicted again to make way for the stadium for the 2020 Olympics.

I seem to remember a similar story of some farmer being evicted from Pyongtaek in 2006 to make way for the expansion of Camp Humphreys who had been evicted when Yongsan Garrison was built. Except that that would have made him 100 years old, since Yongsan was built by the Japanese in 1906. Oops.
