Who's running the show?

Kim Jong-il's brother, that's who. This, according to the Korea Institute for National Unification, a semi-government organization in Seoul. 

As Kim Jong-il supposedly suffers yet another stroke in late October, the Dear Leader's bro-in-law Chang Sŏngtaek (The Admired Leader? The Adored Leader? The Cool-to-Have-at-Parties Leader?) is reportedly minding the store while KJI recuperates from a stroke he may or may not have had three months ago. 

The husband of KJI's baby sister Kim Kyŏnghŭi is "in control and is leading North Korea." Even before the alleged stroke other important figures consulted Chang, said to be KJI's "right-hand man" (오른팔). 

Could this 62-year-old son-in-law of the Great Leader be the one that KJI is grooming to take over? Certainly one would assume that he had the stamp of approval of Kim Ilsung himself to sleep with the President-for-Eternity's daughter, so why not screw the entire country?

Sorry. That was terribly uncalled for.
