Tuesday Bag o’ Fraud

For the second time in two months, my debit card’s been compromised. Donna picked it up right away: four small charges from Angeles City in the Philippines. I always examine card readers on gas pumps and ATMs and am pretty sure I haven’t fallen victim to a skimmer. Well, who knows? This time I had […]

If you know me, you know I obsess over North Korea and the Kim regime. Probably because I spent some time in neighboring South Korea, sitting air defense alert at Osan Air Base and running trail near the DMZ with the Seoul Hash House Harriers.

Many Americans, starting with but not confined to news reporters, made fun of the North Koreans.

I wrote a blog entry at the […]

Fat Tuesday Blogging

My sisters and I grew up in a non-Mardi Gras home: Mom, like all Southern Baptists, observed Lent the whole year round; Dad, an agnostic, pretty much did whatever he wanted to do regardless of the time of year. I married a Catholic girl, but Mardi Gras wasn’t part of her family’s tradition either. Oh, […]

Oh, for a Sound Social Atmosphere!

Regular readers are aware of my fascination with all things North Korean. I check the Korean Central News Agency site almost every day, and just this morning found this gem:

China Strives to Create Sound Social Atmosphere

Beijing, February 20 (KCNA) — China intensified the campaign against yellow culture and illegal publications in order to […]
