Your Daily North Korean Headline

Interesting. I see that even our industrious friends in North Korea take a break from updating the news on a Sunday.

Which is fortuitous. Because it led me to this lovely headline from yesterday:

Korean's Surnames

Maybe not a terribly interesting headline all by itself but the article is interesting.

Other than the noted inefficiency of people daring to have hundreds of surnames, this bit stood out.

It is a custom of the Korean people to refrain from marriage between those of the same surnames and origins to give birth to fine posterity.

Glad to know! And all this time, I thought North Korea was the West Virginia of Asia!
