"Democracy, whiskey and sexy:" The Evil Empire

The New York Times has a take on North Korea ... even the liberal Times recognizes that the government of that nation is wicked. (Note to North Korea: If the Times is on to you ... you must be really bad.) The walls of this brutal and hateful regime are cracking ... they cannot keep out the West and with the West comes the invincible Gospel .. Where the Right Is Right

See Democracy, Whiskey and Sexy ...

Having just returned from North Korea, I see a glimmer of hope, for in Pyongyang you can feel North Korea changing. Free markets are popping up. Two tightly controlled Internet cafes have opened. Special economic zones seek foreign investment. Casinos lure Chinese gamblers. Cellphones have been introduced, with restrictions. The economy has been rebounding since 2001. Plans are under way for a new Orthodox church.
