Sunday Football Open Thread: Panthers at the Redskins

Unfortunately, I don’t have my football pool picks to share with you this week as I’ve misplaced them but I can tell you one game I know what my pick was for and that’s in the Panthers vs. Redskins game. I picked the ‘skins. As a matter of fact, I can’t see myself picking the Panthers for the forseeable future until/when they look like they’re finally getting it together.

Game time is 1 pm ET and will be broadcast on Fox in this area.

North Korea: Because a bullet to the head is so plebian

Daddy’s little psychopath

Hey, when you’re Beloved Leader God-King of the world’s largest prison camp masquerading as a nation and you want someone dead, you don’t do it the way just anyone would. That would be too… common. Beneath you. Nope, when you decide to whack a minister as a lesson to others, you do it in a way everyone will notice:

Kim Chol, vice minister of the army, was taken into custody earlier this year on the orders of Kim Jong-un, who assumed the leadership after the death of his father in December.

On the orders of Kim Jong-un to leave “no trace of him behind, down to his hair,” according to South Korean media, Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round and “obliterated.”

The execution of Kim Chol is just one example of a purge of members of the North Korean military or party who threatened the fledgling regime of Kim Jong-un.

Other examples here and here.
