North Korean dictator Kim Jung Il died on Saturday of a heart-attack a the age of 69.  I hope this is how he and his dad both feel in hell:

So, do the people of North Korea have a glimmer of hope from Kim’s death or is this twelve-day mourning period merely a cruel, choreographed “Two-Minutes Hate”-like interregnum?  The dictator’s dead — long live the dictator kind of thing.

Unfortunately, it’s not like they’re going to have anything remotely resembling an election in the”Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea” moving forward.  Heir Kim Jung Un, Il’s third son and one educated in Switzerland, is likely to be a military pawn at least in the short-term, so the future is generally murky.  We can bet to see some overt gesture after the mourning period ends, but what may be is also unclear.

One thing is clear:  without a significant change the people of North Korea will still live in a basket case nation bent on its own suicide.
