Incredible pictures from North Korea ... and creepy news from Russia

Some guy apparently went to North Korea and took a bunch of pictures. The pictures and commentary available here. Well worth reading/viewing. Wow. I think North Korea's a place I've ... pretty much never seen anything of previous to this other than fictional stuff in movies and so on.

In creepier news from our Russian bureau... Russian premiere lifts boy's shirt and kisses him on stomach -- prompted by a desire to "touch him like a kitten". CREEEEEEEEEEPY!!!!!
