Don’t Mess With The Southside (of Korea)!
I must have Asia on the brain this week. Between yesterday’s post and a constant hankering for authentic kimchi like I had during my trip to Korea, I just can’t get enough of the Far East these days. Thanks to disagreement over a media regulation bill, South Korea’s parliament session erupted into an all-out brawl yesterday, the likes of which I haven’t seen since last year’s nationally televised Romanian slap-fest. Apparently this happens from time to time, and it’s an approach to government that I can’t believe the U.S. hasn’t tried yet. I’m usually staunchly anti-violence, but for some reason little Asian government officials getting their tussle on makes me giggle (and for some reason think of Pokemon, which I know is actually Japanese. Is that racist?)
