The Week We View for Apr. 12th

>In the Rude or Stupid department: The South Korean city of Iksan, which is known as Korea’s first “woman-friendly city,” the government installed 25 parking spaces reserved for women only. They’re outlined in pink, with a large pink flower symbol, and are 20 centimeters wider than the standard parking space.

The Mild Mild West

Well, Kim Jong-il launched his missile. People are starving in North Korea. The west, as well as Japan and the South Koreans did nothing. People are starving in North Korea. We continue to Lord Chamberlin this guy and appease him to no end. People are starving in North Korea. Why we didn't stand up to him and shoot the missile down is beyond reason.
