Put a bow on it... it is a wrap.
Justice Minister M. Yanagida resigns.
Public support for the Kan administration has gone from ~49% to ~26% in a month.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Y. Sengoku gets the Justice portfolio on an interim basis.
Given Sengoku's personal numbers, 26% overall approval could be the best Kan can hope for if a solid replacement at Justice can't be found quickly.
