Whether or not this is legit, I don’t know. But I sure as hell am hoping it is. Kim Jong on Twitter?!

Mutant pigs.
The Japanese countryside.
dumbfounded peasants.

My favorite tweet of the day comes from North Korea, the DPRK News Service, the “official” news feed of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Please don’t be a parody account. Please, be real. Please tell me that Kim Jong-un loves to tweet as much as Donald Trump.

Doesn’t get much better than this. Gonna have to pay more attention to this Twitter account.


Long Live Stalin

Across a resurgent Russia, Stalin lives again, at least in the minds and hearts of some.”

That’s a sentence from a story in the Los Angeles Times. It’s a good, compelling read.

I had a teacher in college, who ironically or not was supposed to be teaching us about American government, yet proudly declared her love of Karl Marx during the first day of class. Her heroes, she said, were Charles Darwin, Karl Marx & Sigmund Freud. Three gentlemen whose influence on society I question.

Oh, Molly Doneka. Or Molly Donecka. However you spell her name. What a crazy lady.

A few weeks later, after I had challenged some of her claims in class a few times, she asked me to step out into the hallway, where she very forcefully asked me to drop her class. Of course, she wasn’t really asking me. It was a command. She was intimidating. She would have been a great Stalinist comrade in Mother Russia.
