24. I'm going to cut the guy a little slack ...
I think he had, pretty much, just arrived in Tokyo when he received news of the tragedy ... so, he had to come right back ... that's a difficult trip turn around (not to mention in a time of tragedy) and come right back must have been beyond exhausting.

I do have to add that it is entirely possible that the guy may frequently have an inappropriate affect ... I'm not aware of that, though
