Japanese Overworked -- When Japanese Prime Minister
Keizo Obuchi had a stroke and fell into a coma last
month, many observers blamed his hard work habits.
Obuchi had only taken three days off in the past two
years. Japanese officials worry that Japan's famed long
hours and hard work habits are taking a toll on Japan's
