Dawn patrol

An article in today's Times, "Missile Tests Divide Seoul From Tokyo," reveals how South Korea and Japan have responded differently to recent North Korean rumblings. This bit seemed straight out of Wodehouse:

On Sunday, the South Korean president’s office issued a statement saying that overreacting to the tests would only heighten tensions on the Korean peninsula. “There is no reason to fuss over this from the break of dawn like Japan,” it read.

On Monday, Japanese officials called South Korea’s comments regrettable and said Tokyo was not “creating a big fuss.”
