Loose change for December 13, 2009

 Economic news 
 North Korea news and stuff 
  •  Rodong Shinmun blasts South Korea for "confrontation policy," warning of a "decisive decision" on inter-Korean relations. Kushibo's komment: Yawn. 
  • Choe Sang-hun of the New York Times briefly discusses the H1N1 "swine flu" outbreak in North Korea.
  • North Korean talks talked up as "a good start" by someone named Sunny Lee. I'd like to see someone named "Sunny" talk about something dark and depressing, like North Korean human rights abuses. Something like: "Millions face dismal winter of deprivation and cold" by Sunny. Then I'd like to see Rain get a gig in Las Vegas: "Rain comes to Desert." Nah, that ones too obvious. Ah, if the tabloids were reporting on whether he's going to choose to go skiing in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, or Hole, Norway: "Bi Can't Decide Which Hole to Go To." I should go work for the Joongang Daily.
  • North Korea is reportedly stepping up DPRK Air Force training near the disputed maritime border in the Yellow Sea. 
  • The Chosun Ilbo asks why there's so much secrecy over the succession of Kim Jong-il's son.
 Other Korea-related stuff
