TOKYO (AP) - Japan's Princess Kiko gave birth to a boy early Wednesday, the royal family's first male heir to the throne in more than 40 years, the palace announced.


Two points to note:

1. This goes some way towards sorting out Japan's crisis of succession (they were going to have to allow female succession, or adopt a boy, or something similarly daft.)

2. The use of Japanese English in the headline. Such dullardry.
