Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun...
Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

Daily Kor for March 10, 2010
It may be a testament of how things have changed from the Roh administration to the Lee administration that two North Korean asylum seekers could top news, sort of. Although the Roh administration did take in thousands of North Korean refugees — more than all other administrations combined — they also tried to downplay the issue in the media and public sphere to the detriment (even death) of some of the escapees. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
