Kim Jong dead, long live Kim Jong?

North Korean leader Kim Jong-il died this week, and his designated successor is his 27-year-old son, Kim Jong-eun. Well, that’s a minor difference and easy enough to learn.

The real question is, will his youth make him more sane, or less sane, than his father? It’s too early to tell. One could only hope for a greater degree of sanity with the new regime. Then again, there’s that saying about the apple not falling far from the crazy tree.

Or words to that effect. All I know is, from all the intrigue that seems to be surrounding this change of power in North Korea, I wouldn’t want to be the one charged with giving the man new life insurance rates. Yikes.
