Nuclear Fallout - The first casualty

It seems that dissension among the ranks has led to the collapse of The Korea Liberator. It would appear that the recent events in North Korea and how they should be handled has led to 'irreconcilable differences'. I guess that North Korea can cause regime collapse too.

Fortunately, the end of the KL does not see the end of the authors. Joshua, we are told, will return to One Free Korea; and Richardson will return to DPRK Studies. I note that I do not have that on my blogroll. I will try to remember to rectify that on the weekend.

Speaking frankly, I loved the KL. I don't think there was a single post, apart from the 'North Korea in the News' segments, that I agreed with. I usually departed the site feeling a mixture or outrage, contempt and mirth. And in the words of the great Bill Waterson, as spoken through my hero, Calvin, "Shock and titillate me just don't ever bore me". The KL was never boring.
