BBC originally posted his name as “Kim Jong II” (or “Kim Jong the Second”).

I can’t believe I was the first to post on Kim’s death about 20 minutes or more after it hit the Internet; I figured it would be a 200+ thread by now. Too close to Christmas, I guess.

There’s already a gazillions articles on Kim’s death, if you go to Google News and enter Kim + Korea.

So that explains it :-) I swear, I did a title search on “Kim.”

This thread will self-destruct...

The thread is fine.
I usually try to NOT be the posting police.
I just clicked “post” before I thought too much about it.
That’s a dangerous thing to do around here.

Have a great night!

Some people get the rare opportunity to be great. And they choose to be small. See William Shakespeare.
