    I liked Dianne Sawyer’s visit years ago. The government controlled the heck out of her, but one fact kept coming up: there were no fat people. Everyone on the carefully sensored camera placement was skinny as a rail. And those were the ‘approved’ citizens.

    I have the feeling the place is an absolute hell hole. The only difference between NK and Haiti is nicer beaches.

    Cassandra – The Economists cover of Kim always cracked me up. I’m glad to see they are riffing on the original “Greetings Earthlings” headline.
