North Korea’s Youth Captain: Hot or Not?

I admit I have a thing for North Korea’s “Dear Leader,” whose fashion choices are frequently mocked yet, in my opinion, under-rated. Now he appears to be grooming son #3, aka Youth Captain, as his heir.

I love how this leaked propaganda document holds nothing back in its praise: “He is a genius of geniuses. He has been endowed by nature with special abilities. There is nobody on the planet who can defeat him in terms of faith, will and courage.”

But my question to you readers, is Youth Captain hot or not?!

Police tape, bomb scare at school nearby

Walking home before lunch, the small street near my house was blocked with police tape and many many young police men. Peering past the police line, I saw some official looking daddies in dark suits moving about. The location is just down the small street from the destroyed house and near or possibly inside the grounds of an elementary school.

My Japanese is so bad. After speaking to several of the police, I understood there was a missile. I asked if it came from North Korea, which has been recently threatening to launch a long-range missile in the Pacific. I was assured that it did not land today. Another cop told me it was 50 years old.

This is what North Korean’s 1998 Taepodong missile looks like.

Once home, the husband explained that World War II bombs are still being found throughout Tokyo. It’s probably not an immediate threat, but still kind of a shock after 60 years to feel the presence of the fire-bombing.
