Happy Birthday Kim Jong-il!
Hey hey he is back at the big 6-7 on Monday (well his b-day party is at least). And just to familiarize ourselves with the oh-so-finicky leader of North Korea! Apparently, and to reassure a doubtful world that he is still alive (accordingly to the synchronized swimming team, anyways). The picture gallery is really special.
Of course all these celebrations (a huge national holiday, reminds me of another Asian country) occurred around the time of a prospective long-range missile launch. Is North Korea upping the ante? Or is it just the same old, same old? I think it's time to get those Six Party talks chugging along.
