Loose change for April 25, 2010

 Economic and business news 
 North Korea news and stuff 
 Other Korea-related stuff 
 Americana and miscellany 
  • The two major Republican candidates vying to win the nomination for the US Senate seat are both under fire for previous campaign donations — to Democrats! One gave thousands of dollars to her would-be Democratic opponent in November, incumbent Senator Barbara Boxer, whom she described as "a courageous leader and friend of California's technology industry." The other blamed his wife for being the one who donated $21,000 to Al Gore.
  • Japan is moving to settle its row with the US over the bases in Okinawa. (And make no mistake, if the US ever leaves South Korea bases, it will not be able to sustain bases in Japan for very long, particularly Okinawa.)
