I've written something about the Eido Shimano - Robert Aitken - DBZ scandal before, but, with continued practice I think I can see more a bit of the why, as in why Shimano is still there. The lineage of Shimano is legit; the Dharma is indeed propagated by his successors, but the real question, to me, is how to make whole what was shattered. In a certain sense it cannot be, and in another sense it's more than full.
That said, we Americans do appreciate the notion of public accountability, and though Shimano is now aged, words should be spoken.
