The New York times has an article up documenting the latest failure in the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il’s attempts at being Doctor No. I can’t help but think that this is terrorism on a global scale by its smallest player*. The North Korean commanders on this mission to avoid irrelevence probably knew it would fail. Failure in this case, is the goal since their objective is to scare. What is scarier to regular people than a failed missile possibly hitting a civilian target.

Politico has posted a look inside Obama’s meeting with the CEOs of various banks.

But, hey, we all have opinions, and I think you should read this article and have one.
