North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, and I apparently share a distinctive trait. No, I do not have the adoration, state-imposed or otherwise, of an entire nation. But I do love theme parks. And, it would seem, so does Kim. Soon after he assumed power, he toured an amusement park and began micro managing by berating its management and insisting that they paint and spruce the place up. A few weeks ago, he attended a concert with (probable unauthorized likenesses of) Mickey Mouse and other members of the Disney gang.
Now, according to NBC News, the young Kim got married and spent the equivalent of a North Korean honeymoon, at -- you guessed it -- an amusement park. I suppose the more time he spends obsessing over thrill rides and costumed dogs, the less time he has to rattle sabers. Which is just fine with me. In fact, I'd like to issue an open invitation to my comrade in coasters: Let's ride the rails together and scream like ninnies in delight. My treat. Whaddya say? Just leave your sabers at home and promise not to yell at the park's management.
