Thanks to Jim Guterman, Boston.com brings to us a picture extravaganza (The Big Picture) of KJI on his rounds with just a little less supernatural powers at work.
His mouth is open in pretty much every photo, and when he does smile its a little lopsided. Looking pretty frail! I hope the rotten bastard croaks soon.
While looking at these photos, one thing occurred to me over and over: the artificiality of what the Dear Leader was inspecting. Or at least how artificial it appears to me… the apparent perfection of everything KJI was shown.
And of course, that is how Korean culture works… As a public school teacher, I put on “demonstration classes” which are a far cry from the reality of a real class. The principal would have no idea what actually goes on during a real class. Even if he were to drop by unannounced, I and the students would immediately switch gears into show-mode…
South Korea has had a hard time adapting to transparency – and that’s in a democratic setting… I wonder sometimes if the Dear Leader has any clue how badly his country is failing.
The man looks like a straight Oakland gangster.
