Kim Jong…Ill?

Should I feel badly that Kim Jong Il is…ill?  (bad play on words – I know).  He’s reportedly suffered a stroke.

According to the news report,

According to The Times, talk in Asia is turning to the odd cast of characters who may succeed him.

The inner workings of the Kim dynasty suggest that wives, concubines, blood brothers and old comrades are rising and falling with increasing regularity and drama.

One son is a confirmed gambler, another is rumored to be effeminate and practically nothing is known about the third.

Hey!  That sounds like a party!!

I’m trying to summon some compassion, but it just isn’t coming.

Maybe tomorrow.
