I didn't know whether to laugh or be very scared.
Actually, I wasn't sure which person was the weirdest or craziest.
Dennis Rodman, former NBA basketball star and one of the loosest cannons of all time, visited North Korea on a diplomatic mission for an exhibition basketball game and had a audience with the country's new premier, Kim Jong Un — something some leading diplomats in the U.S. government have been unable to do.
Rodman and the leader of the normally isolated North Korean government? Ponder that for a moment.
Apparently, Kim Jong Un is a big basketball fan, particularly of the Chicago Bulls.
What was even more intriguing was what Rodman said of the visit. You have to consider that this was issued through North Korean government officials.
At Pyongyang's Sunan airport on his way to Beijing, Rodman said it was "amazing" that the North Koreans were "so honest." He added that Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, North Korea's founder, "were great leaders."Rodman, never understated, continued about Kim Jong Un. "He's proud, his country likes him — not like him, love him, love him. "Guess what, I love him. The guy's really awesome."
Bridge-building or laying land mines?
Two peas from different cultures in a pod united by eccentricities.
You be the judge.
