Suki Kim, Unsung Hero

This woman went UNDERCOVER into North Korea. She posed as a schoolteacher (she's actually a writer) and got accepted to teach at their top private school, where she reported on what life is like for their students. Kim wanted to humanize North Korea and show us where their next generation of leaders was coming  from. Suki Kim tells us that these kids were good people, but terrified every minute and made to turn on each other for survival:

Now, isn't that pretty brave? And an interesting way to help improve the world's relations with North Korea? And have you heard about her in the mainstream news lately? Or, have you heard only negative stuff and drama about the Sony Pictures movie fiasco...

Suki Kim's book should be the real story.

Merry Police Elf Christmas State!

WPXI News says we should beware watchful idols like Elf on a Shelf, because it convinces our kids to accept a future "police state."


We already have a police state, don't we? Secret surveillance, journalists getting jailed, protestors getting teargassed, arrested and fined, and innocent civilians getting murdered in broad daylight with no legal consequence because it was the police who murdered them. How many more horrors do you need to have a police state?
