Now, here’s a curious occurrence.  Looks like the Dear Leader is willing to forgo a little caviar and Joy Brigades to help out the hometown of his son’s mother.  The Time news feed makes an argument that $500k is a lot of money for a country like North Korea.

In other irrelevant North Korea news, the New York Times reviews Homefront!  The game isn’t all that different than a lot of first person shoot ‘em ups, but the reviewer thought that the storyline was interesting (even, gasp, somewhat plausible).  Plus, unlike other games in the genre, you are not fighting in the forests of France or the streets of Mogadishu but you are actually running around (with a gun) the streets of America, through abandoned Walmarts and Hooters restaurants which the reviewer thought provided a level of “connection” absent from other games.
