"Japan's Beethoven," the famous, deaf composer who for two decades has passed off someone else's work as his own, has admitted that he is no longer deaf, but maintains that he really was deaf. This statement comes after allegations by Mamoru Samuragochi's ghost writer, part-time music school teacher Takashi Niigaki, who last week said, "I've never felt he was deaf ever since we met."

Samuragochi didn't go that far, stating, "In recent years I have started to be able to hear a little bit more than before... since about three years ago I can hear words if people speak clearly and slowly into my ears," but that, "It is true that I received a certificate proving I had a hearing disorder and that I couldn't hear anything up until three years ago." 

He promised he would "make [his] direct apology publicly sometime soon."

I told you I didn't have any more "Lisa the Iconoclast" screens.
