I hope when there is a coup that it wil go the good way, instead of the bad. For example, More freedom to the citizens of North-Korea and free borders. After all, they must get re-united again.

Good luck North-Korea.

The rumors that Nicholas Kristof would be appointed Secretary of Labor and Brothel Management will begin on Tuesday.
