The Country Disaster
I spend an inordinate amount of my time reading news about North Korea. The place is fascinating. It's reading things like "secretive regime," "plotting an overthrow," and "lab under a mountain" in the articles that keeps me so interested. The guy in charge is a real life Bond villain, and he's friends with Dennis Rodman. It's like a Bond reality show over there. And I realize there are horrible atrocities being committed, but I'm at a loss for what I can do about some lunatic in North Korea. It's like looking when you drive past a car crash that happened hours ago. You're powerless to do anything and feel for the people involved, and yet you can't help but look as you go past.
