North Korea ended years of speculation, on behalf of many nations, by testing a nuclear device underground. Now it’s for certain–North Korea is new a member of the Asian Nuclear Club!

Timed for maximum political impact–the test occurred on the ninth anniversary of Kim Jong’s-il reign as leader of this Worker’s Party. His neighbors in China, Japan, and South Korea, look at this event as the verification of “bad news” which they had often suspected.

One class of North Korean missiles (the short range ones) can hit targets in Japan, and South Korea, as well as hit some areas of American interest. Longer range missiles are still under development and yet to be deployed.

Despite all the bad news, President Bush is seeking a peaceful settlement to the situation–while also keeping all options open to him as commander in chief. The United Nations is busy seeking solutions at this time.

Watercolors and sketches created by Hitler, during his days as a soldier during World War I (1914-1918), recently sold for nearly 1/4 of a million dollars at an auction in Lostwithiel, in Cornwall county, in England.
It is interesting to consider what might have happeded if Adolf Hitler would have been embraced by art critics during his youth–and considered to be a gifted artist by all who admired his work. If that would have been the case, would it have meant that World War II and the Holocaust could have been avoided? It is an interesting thought to consider. Hey–what if Osama bin Laden was interested in golf as a youth–later becoming a professional golfer. Wouldn’t that have been interesting too.

On Monday nights at 8:00 PM Central Time, I try to set myself in front of my television set to watch Heroes. I really like the blonde haired actress who plays one of the lead roles (the one with the small dark haired son). The young Japanese actor is a funny guy and was well cast for the program. I also like the American actor who plays the role of a painter and sees disaster before the fact–and paints them ahead of time.

I wish this program all the best. I am amazed that they haven’t said the word “Nostradamus” yet.
