The article in the News-Press on this latest fiasco generated by our City Council regarding their disrespectful treatment of the Japanese group is totally sad and downright shameful. What business does the city of Glendale have meddling in international affairs? Absolutely none. So much for celebrating our diversity. I am certain that Otto and Anabell Neufeld, who worked for years to build the Friendship Tea Garden and establish a sister city with Japan at the Brand Library location are spinning in their graves.
