You are going to need to spend some serious cash this season.
Like, more than a $100,000 serious.

The Koreas, part 4

Sunan "International" Airport in Pyongyang.
Down to one runway these days.

Things are a little busier down south at Incheon International Airport in Seoul.

The Koreas, part 3

How much do you know about the late Dear Leader?

“Kim Jong Il was, indeed, a peerlessly great man who breathed his last like a hero, totally dedicated to the people, making endless forced marches for field guidance for their happier life with iron will and superhuman energy.”

The best writers in Hollywood could not make this stuff up if their lives depended on it.

Where do you want to live?

Lodestar No More

So long and good riddance Dear Leader. You leave a country that cannot feed its own people. A place where time has stood still since what, the 1960's? A capital city full of empty streets and traffic guards directing vehicles that are simply not there.  Not an Internet but an Intranet for your people.

As your people have grown smaller and hungrier you somehow managed to keep the pot belly and exotic sunglasses.

Look at everyone wailing away on camera. So upset that you have decided to take your wisdom and juche spewing nonsense to another place. Don't kid yourself. None of them really mean it. It's all a show. 

Just like your entire life.

SMG Champs

South Central Middle School in Bartow County is in the house! A team from that school took home 1st place in the 2011 fall Stock Market Game simulation with a final portfolio total of $214,477.21. Not bad for a ten-week stretch of time.

And in second place, a team from none other than South Central Middle School in Bartow County with a portfolio total of $207,427.67.

Major congratulations to both teams, and teacher Jason Kornegay, for the huge wins. We will be seeing Jason and his students at the Atlanta Freight Depot in May for the yearly Stock Market Game luncheon.

Thank you to all of the students and teachers who participated this fall. We will see you again in February for the 2012 spring Stock Market Game simulation.
