Welcome to America, Masahiro Tanaka

Classy as always, New York Post.

Got this passed along to me from multiple people... Not that I expect anything less than tastelessly exploitative from the New York Post, but take a look at this cover from Thursday's metro edition. The headline heralds the New York Yankees' signing of Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a $155 million contract.

No doubt, that's a pretty big deal, but does it warrant the accompanying image of a Japanese World War II aircraft? Decades later, people still seem to go out of their way to invoke war imagery with anything related to Japan. How about trying a little harder? And stay classy as always, New York Post.
