Kim Jong Il

Kim Jong Il allegedly died on Saturday in North Korea. He was a horrible person. He has oppressed many people, held them in poverty and hunger, and lied and lied and lied to them. Living so close to North Korea has caused me to think a lot about human rights issues. I have been tithing to an organization that gives aid to the agricultural industry of NK in an effort to stave off another famine. We have so much food in SK, so how is that people are starving so close? It's sickening.

He has a son, a successor.

They say that now there is added instability on the peninsula so the won, which has been adversely affected by the European debt crisis, has dropped further, which is bad news for me.

**the Korean news that's in English just reported that the NK currency has collapsed and that the price of instant noodles has gone up. I have read other things about the finances of NK and it's always bizarre, what is affected in their markets.
