I like to think I'm a people person, and I like to think I can get along with pretty much anyone.... Especially if they're willing to sell me plutonium. But if there's one kind of person that really gets under my skin, it's an ungrateful S.O.B. who just don't know how to express proper gratitude.

Case in point: Charles Robert Jenkins is an American soldier who was stationed in South Korea back in 1965. One day he decided, hey, I'm bored, so let's defect to North Korea! And that's exactly what he did!

For 39 years we fed this guy, gave him a place to live, and even provided him with a woman. So what does he do when he finally gets to leave? He turns around and calls his former host an "immense prison that defied all norms."

I'm sorry, but I think that is just plain rude.

Oh great! NOW I find out that the United States' military equipment in South Korea has fallen into disrepair. Many of their tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and Humvees are suffering from broken down engines, faulty transmissions, and cracked gun turrets. And because all the spare parts are being diverted to Iraq, the arms in Korea have no prospect of being fixed any time soon.

I wish I had known about this sooner. Then I could taken advantage of the situation and reunited with my brothers in the south who are yearning to shed the oppressive yoke of capitalism, give up their silly Ipods, and breath the oppressive air of a dictatorship!

We old line commies are becoming few and far in between. In fact, I'm guessing Cuba's Castro and myself are the last two left (and no, I'm NOT counting the Chinese). For years it has been understood that Fidel's brother Raul would succeed him when the time comes.

Now comes word that the United States already has "plans" to insure a smooth transition to one of those democracy things when Fidel finally does croak.

It's nice of the Americans to go around forcing their system of government on other countries. After all, the transition to democracy and freedom has certainly gone with remarkable smoothness in Iraq, hasn't it?
