I've gotten out of the habit of regularly reading the Wall Street Journal's OpinionJournal.com, which is too bad since it led me to miss this essay on the inter-Korean relationship until I saw the pointer to it from The Marmot's Hole. I was a little surprised that RJ didn't distinguish the current official policy of the Blue House from the way South Koreans in general feel about the "Sunshine Policy", but then he's there and speaks Korean, so it's entirely possible he doesn't see a difference any more than Myers does in his article.
RTWT, especially the comments at the Marmot's Hole.

Also courtesy of the Marmot is this cool story about Peter Chang, whose parents came to America as part of the Korean mission to Washington in 1903 and found themselves out of a job after Japan's anschluss of Korea. Chang's story is a very interesting one and says a lot about social mobility.
