Well, I did it. One whole week! It’s hardly enough to establish a habit though, so more work on this is still a requirement.

North Korea is dominating the headlines, and I’m preparing my own take on the issue. Things are changing faster than I can write, and most updates seem to be happening when I’m asleep. I just might have to do a summary when it’s all over!

We’re luck in New Zealand – we’re not big, and we’re not important. We’re not even a US ally. Thus it’s unlikely Kim Jong-un’s attention will turn our way. Even if there’s a military crisis, our role is likely to be mostly rescuing people via Busan and similar work.

We need distraction more than ever at the moment, so I’ll start with the Political Tweets today and get them over and done with.
