"Who are you fighting for anyway? The people? Newsflash! The people hate you! I made sure of that!"
Bob Barbas, DMC Devil May Cry

"What we need right now is a clear message to the people of this country. This message must be read in every newspaper, heard on every radio, seen on every television. This message must resound throughout the ENTIRE InterLink! I want this country to realise that we stand on the edge of oblivion! I want every man, woman and child to understand how close we are to chaos! I want EVERYONE! To REMEMBER! WHY THEY NEED US!"

"To America's Iago, Ann Coulter, for rewriting history to suit her own nefarious purposes."
John McNally, book dedication for America's Report Card

"It was (Dean) Acheson who elegantly explained all of the lies that he was obliged to tell Congress and the ten-minute-attention-spanned average American: 'If we did make our points clearer than truth, we did not differ from most other educators and could hardly do otherwise...' Thus were two generations of Americans treated by their overlords until, in the end, at the word 'communism,' there is an orgasmic Pavlovian reflex just as the brain goes dead."
Gore Vidal Vanity Fair, 1999

On the morning of September 22, fishermen of the fishery station in Rajin-Sonbong city caught a 10cm long white sea cucumber while fishing on the waters off Chongjin. They said the rare white sea cucumber has come to hail the auspicious event of electing Secretary Kim Jong Il as Party General Secretary. Seeing the mysterious natural phenomena, Koreans say Secretary Kim Jong Il is indeed the greatest of great men produced by heaven and that flowers come into bloom to mark the great event.
Korean Central News Agency (29 Sep 1997)
