It’s safe to say that I’m very happy to learn that US journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee have been freed from a grotesquely unfair incarceration by the North Korean regime. No one deserves to spend time as guests of the Nork gulag, including the 22.6 million residents of the slave state, less the handful at the top stuffing caviar into their mouths.
Still, I find myself just the teensiest bit peeved that former President Bill Clinton had to make the trip, hat in hand, to beg for their release. Good agitprop for the Kim clique no doubt, but lèse majesté and that.
Probably a good thing they didn’t ask W to go.
