"You know. so that's kind of where that comes from all the titles. But i think has a little stick around that of what the story is going to be. Then i do research and find out things that will complement their storyline. Yeah i usually ask. Authors what fighters inspired them and in your case. I know there's some obvious suspects like tony. Hillerman greg johnson. Let me tony tony for sure. One of the books. I've picked up after robert parker spencer series was some tony's books you know i sorta reason though so robert b parker. Tony hillerman john d. Mcdonald you know craig lately guy. I met craig along time ago and we message back and forth in email. Sometimes you know get things together but it's it's one of those things where reading them. I told him about her dad. I says you know. Your father taught me about the landscape and john d. Mcdonald taught me about you. Know setting up things you know that writing in general parker told me about dialogue mic. Explain taught me about you know action and in a novel you know and hemingway. I think told me hard. I read a lot of things of all those offers. So i have i. I showed an toy. Have come the complete works of her dead in hardcover. First edition I had those have all craig's assigned you know My have already be parker's you know as i i have read them. I haven't gotten back to him. Now that i'm a writer. I read them whenever agenda. I get a short time to do. So but yeah. They all affected me. I feel like. I learned from the masters by reading and absorbing what they were doing. A robert robert parker had his whole thing was was raymond chandler. Maybe he is circle. That and that's how spencer came about. This dissertation in college was about as i and they grow. You can see these writers tony and robert. When they're first novels came out as they grew throughout the series as a writer. You could tell and things are still volved and got much better and that's going to happen to meet everybody else to writes it. The more you do it. The more devolves gets better. That's great at least right into my next question. Actually i was gonna ask you what advice you would give to aspiring novelists. Oh boy I think number one is never give up on yourself. Never let somebody else tell you. You can't do that because you're a dream isn't there drain and they have no way reason or know how that affects you so always always go. The best always doing reach that goal rain. Because you know it's it could be out there you never know but you don't know unless you try you know Study as much as you can research as you are. I know as much as you can about things because none of us know everything and the more we research i learned about things. I never thought it would alert about in my life. You know before doing this. And it's just an incredible mind. A lot of knowledge let you evolve as or more. You can do that the more you find out about that and just never give up never ever give. It's so true and we learn so much from each other writers do and he's like you said rapper conquer started with raymond chandler. The essentially recreating him. You know we all copy from each other to extend. It's harness the whole ecosystem. If you will like milton berle say he stole from everybody. You know what. I mean you you you read your pickup..

That was that was that was a memorable moment. It doesn't really work all that well, and I was very happy to have the moniker being known as Pennsylvania's third senator. I know Philadelphia well, I married a Philly girl. By the way, by the way, got my eagles jacket on. Are they tweeting out in mosque? Morse code? No, Joe. That's not an Eagles jacket. That's a Delaware blue hens jacket. You know what did what did Warren G. Harding run? What was one of his campaign promises a chicken in every pot. A blue Joe Biden a blue hand in every pot.

Who We're born after we're born before 1965. After Howie. I thought Adam Schiff was a pencil neck geek, but your governor Charlie, aka greet him and you guys should be champion felt like that. And he's different from Cuomo. Murphy Wittmer Pritzker Mills, etcetera, etcetera. How exactly, he because he says he's a Republican. That's how that's true. That is. That is one difference.

According to sources, the PGA of America is expected to announce today The Ryder Cup will be pushed back to 2021 the president's couple We pushed back 2 2022 that is now confirmed. The latest headlines and information tune into SportsCenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day. Thank you, Katie George. I had the Ryder Cup scoop, right? Had it should have gone with it two days ago when I said that it was gonna happen, you Katie Cambell and it you know, she had the information deleted Tweet. You had the information. You coulda scooped appetite. And I know I didn't unfortunate joining us right now in the show. Pencil performance line, one of the greats in basketball, one of my favorite guys to ever watch because he did it so good. Joe Johnson. Joining us will be playing on the TV and the tournament, the basketball tournament that's kicking off tomorrow. Joe, let's start there. How has this process been to get everybody on the same page about making sure that you're safe and ready to play this tournament? It's been a little interesting. You know the protocol before we even got here. The Ohio you had to take a couple of years, you know, at home and then cinnamon so It was a little bit of a struggle. But once we got here, a little bubble man has been great. You know, date everything is handled very well and they just make it a great safe environment. House of food. I saw the picture of the NBA players in the in the Orlando bubble. They weren't too happy with it. I'm sure that that's going to get figured out. What you getting Seth Music and decent girl growed out there. We get Ah, hidden. You know, Like the first day I was like we ate were like most sandwiches, but then, like the next day, we're here like a gourmet meal. Like you know, past the Parmesan chicken and you know that was kind of like a hidden Joe, You're playing a za member on overseas elites. And you're opening on July 9th against the armored athletes. Who are your team mates? Who can we expect to see when we turn on the television on ESPN, when you guys get going? All right. Uh, so just kind of let you guys know how to go overseas Elite was my older brother, General Parker, who played with him last year. He invited me to play with them and he took a deal overseas, So he's not here. So I came here not knowing none of these guys. You know, I have never worked out with him. Ah new album, but I didn't know I had never met him. So I got here. Guys has two medium. We still haven't worked out together the team because you know, everything is kind of Kind of crazy around here, So we just try and take the next season's wass keeping everybody safe because if one got test positive, they kicked the whole team out. So we're not even taking a chance. So we were going in, and when we get out on the floor tomorrow we'll see how we could together. That that's fascinating to me, because it seems as if in Joe Johnson joining us here in the Dan Lebatard show for the tournament, it's almost The hard work is making sure everyone's safe and sing in the quarantine versus actual rolling the ball out and getting it together. Is that when I'm here Yeah. Yeah, Keeping everybody's face is probably the hardest for and for us overseas elite. You know, we got a great fashion guard Play and Bobby and pool. So you know, I think that's that's a plus is well, you know me and then we got some great young talent who are very hungry and very will get. I didn't get started. So I'm looking forward to the challenges force, Man. I think this is gonna be a lot of Joe We were talking earlier in the show today is theat averse ary the 10 year anniversary of when LeBron James made the decision to Go from Cleveland down to Miami, which led to two championships. Do you remember where you are? You're obviously in the league. But do you remember where you were the night that you watched or heard that LeBron was taking his talents to South Beach? Yeah. I was back home The little Arkansas and couldn't wait. Just like everybody else. Uh, yeah. Maintain years. Men one by one. It's crazy, right? What was the reaction that you have? I mean, I can't even you know, obviously text messages back and forth. I mean, was this like, well known secret that that was happening, Or was this like everybody else like Only I don't know what what he's going to do. No, I think I think everybody can knew that he was leaving Cleveland for him to do the decision. You have to be like. Well, why would he be doing his big deal if he was going back to Cleveland, you know So I kind of had a fence like me. He must be going somewhere. I don't know. And then you see you see the weight and by so obvious and bosses like good luck, Bryant LeBron, I'm like I You know, I just I just gotta put some stuff together, But I think everybody got Louise. Leave, please. You're clearly in a bubble of sorts, getting ready for the tournament That's going to be played there in Columbus, Ohio. What have you heard from maybe former teammates or friends that are in the N B? A, who have either gotten to Orlando for their campus situation or heading to Orlando this week to get for the N B, a restart. I really haven't heard anything. I've got one of the best friends you Meryl Particle, whose assistant coach for Portland Trailblazers mayhem. We haven't talked to past few days. I don't even know when they get down there, but To be in that bubble for Monday, have two months. Three months there, That's gonna be tough. I mean, we're in Columbus and above all, we are here for 10 days remain. So this is this is a breeze compared to what those guys are dealing with. Joe. If you put yourself in that situation, or do you think that there will be guys at some point, you just pointed out. It's not 10 days. It's a month. You think, guys At some point we'll get itchy at week to week three and just go I just I just can't do this anymore and walk away. It may be a couple guys do that. I can't see. You know, I mean, once you commit that, you know, it's going to be kind of tough to kind of get out of it. I mean, yeah. You're gonna have your challenges. As part of so I don't know, man, but I see how they're gonna handle that. There have been some people, Joe that have said. You know this championship whoever's crowned. Hopefully there is somebody crowned at the end of it. There's gonna be an ass trick next to their name Asterisk next to their name. Do you feel like that's right? Or do you feel like maybe this is going to be the toughest championships ever to be one Because of all the different factors that are going on outside of the bubble and within I wouldn't say. I asked, I think because everybody's gonna be dealing with dealing with the same thing. They are gonna be pretty much in the same environment and this is what we're dealing with. Right now. This is our new normal so You know, we have to play the cards we're dealt and those guys got somebody compete. I know it's gonna be a lot different, you know, without the fans in there, but.

"Of the time there's a few bad actors I was riding my bike around Chicago yesterday after the show was of course of incredibly warm sunny breezy day and I thought I'm going to get into this so I got on my bicycle and kind of paddled around and it was it was eerie you know the whole foods and the Bennies liquors I'm just going down hall said in my mind in the Walgreens and all of the shops they had crews out **** plywood like a hurricane was coming into the doors and windows the streets were kind of quiet and everybody has a mask on which makes us all look just a little more sinister and the whole thing just felt like the calm before the storm that didn't hit so bad last night not in my neighborhood I got a text yesterday from a friend he said I just came back from an hour long walk ninety degrees and sunny but only a scant few of us are out and about my neighborhood stores closed and boarded up even the stores flag seems to be hiding last weekend Lincoln Park was busy with family groups on blankets soccer balls kicked about today John it's spooky law abiding taxpaying citizens of Chicago Illinois USA seemed fearful to go out of their homes the bad guys were winning John the bad guys are having today but I'm not going to give them a victory just yet I like our chances yeah my number's three one two nine eight one seven two hundred on Facebook I said you know one of the voices that we haven't heard from so much and we've talked to everybody there's many arms of this monster so let's understand that we can't do everything at once but I haven't heard from a lot of cops I haven't heard from sheriff's deputies Chicago city police Aurora police I haven't heard from Illinois National Guard members except one guy yesterday who called in and didn't entirely appreciate the way Lori Lightfoot was painting the National Guard Laurie you can't win whatever he say there will be somebody that disagrees at sometimes for good reason by the way but the guy that called for the National Guard he's an accountant by trade he's an accountant is a retired accountant and he said we're not vicious knuckle heads but retired accountants don't have years of training on how to control a mob they are not police said that was the point Lori was trying to make yesterday so my question is if you're a police officer a sheriff's deputy National Guard member how's it been for you and your family the last week or so what's that been like out there when I finally do get through the checkpoints to come to my job downtown Chicago I have to go through some police officers in squad cars looking at me and they're always not loving this anymore than I am you know I'm not mad at them that I know that we have a police issue in America but what we're doing today is because of that one guy in Minneapolis it's endemic it's a problem across the country but that was the match that started this fire and the guy that's trying to protect your neighborhood is not the problem says me what do you say three one two nine eight one seven two hundred and by the way Jim what did you want to save your on WGR radio how are you Jim thank you for calling earlier that if Bob and you you catch and then I was messing around with your but your speech jokes yeah he said that they were terrible as I recall actually I love a man I write them down and I guess in the long working and then within that so that's why and you know we go way back re when Leslie Klein tiling and your golf outing and I was a guy who spent a thousand dollars on the Blackhawks way back in the day and all my gosh you know it yeah you you you called in earlier today with Bob I heard your call yeah I just wanted to make nice in nice with you I'm sorry no no nice nice right back Jim thank you for the call no listen I'm teasing you the way you were teasing me no offense taken in speech jokes will return today as we said the first day we don't want to disrespect towards Floyd or or the seriousness of the issues at play here and they are but when we decided not to tell the Monday and then essentially didn't do the bit yesterday I got so many text messages from people saying no this is why we need to give us two minutes of silly jokes please if you'll be asked to answer the following speed Joe question okay Steve is an inch merry Vanderbilt the joke starts this way you'll be asked to provide the punch line what's green and fuzzy and if it falls out of a tree it will kill you what's green and fuzzy and if it falls out of a tree it will kill you complicated there's a lot of moving parts there ARE green fuzzy falls out of a tree it kills you Spain jokes at nine thirty eight sponsored by team Hochberg calling your on WG and how can I help you I Colleen hi hi you're on the air yes I am I can hear you you're on the air I'm gonna come back here figure it out Colleen I know you have some you want to say Michael you're on WG and what's on your mind high hi good morning John it's good to be with yeah I got it talk yeah I've actually talked to a couple of times before it's always nice behind with the great well what's your deal man well I'm a police officer in suburban will county and the one thing I want people to know is it seems like there's a lot of hatred toward police right now and what gets you going through the day is that there are still people out there that do like what we do and that's what I focus on the police officer would be real easy right now to just get in your squad every every day I worked day shift so people are people are out during the day at least I work and it would be real easy to get in your squad car and just go find a nice secluded spot and then my squad and play on my phone and just going to answer my call just kind of lay low what I like to do is I like to go out into the neighborhoods and the neighborhoods with my windows down and we the people and talk to people and interact with people what kind of rate everybody get back yeah what do you getting back from well most people in the town that I work most people do like us and and I do get I do get that interaction from from everybody you know doesn't matter what color they are and we've got quite a mix where I work it doesn't matter what color they are they people that you like what we do John and like I said it would be it just cannot lay low and just you know answer the calls that come out and and kind of go from there but that's what gets me through the day that's what makes me still put my uniform on and the crowd did the job that I do I'm glad you called Michael you stay well thanks for joining us thanks for having me on call again calling what did you want to say are you still there calling yes I am hi Ryan thank you thank you I would like to say that I do not condone what happened with your choice but nobody mentions the fact that cops are getting killed and eaten and run out for on a daily basis now the two have died yesterday there's one in Las Vegas on life support distinct be brought to people's attention to that it's never on the news a hundred and thirty to one hundred thirty two Chicago police officers were injured on Sunday Sunday in Chicago one hundred thirty if if you believe the numbers Lori Lightfoot said a hundred thirty two cops were injured on Sunday alone well that's the thing I mean you cannot kill every top because there's bad cops interspersed didn't some of these police forces but but nobody will report the fact that I've always thought yesterday in a pawn shop in St Louis what was that last night in Alabama they they're people on they have family yeah now that's kind of why I'm bringing it up calling I appreciate your phone call and I appreciate you joining us tonight but what you can't look up at the TV you don't see video of large groups of protesters scrambling because the police are having to deal with somebody or something this is another point they made at the press conferences yesterday that if you have a large civil group of people gathering and then something goes wrong you know suddenly the police have a mob to deal with and a couple of forms in that rose bush and it's hard to suss them out I mean just think about how difficult the job is for the police there this is not a criticism of the protesters or for that matter the police it's just an acknowledgement that what we're asking them to do is really difficult I saw a picture the other day and it was a line of cops and then it was a line of protesters and they're all facing each other and the protesters looked like your nice kids right it's amazing to me sometimes the video the video you see the photographs you see of the protesters I'm not tryna looters although sometimes they're embedded their end but the well intended protesters tend to look like the neighborhoods from which they come so that looks really Hispanic appearances rover looks really African American if you're on the west side and looks really white if you're in some of the nicer neighborhoods of Chicago or the suburbs that's just kind of the composition of those places and sometimes it's quite mixed if urine Nevins general Parker lake view for that matter so they tend to look like all of us it's not just those people or those people and so here was a line of young people facing a line of cops and that could've been a very peaceful group just delivering a message but the police are looking back at it going is this one about to go south on us too and they don't know so it's just a very perilous thing for the police to try and manage that's not taken sides that just acknowledging the group dynamics at play there I'm gonna pause we're going to do the news Spain jokes will come your way after WGN radio news okay then we'll have the answer to the question what's green and fuzzy and if it falls out of a tree it'll kill you I will we will also talk about JB's decision to allow cocktail deliveries it's time for the news on WGN it's seventy

S. ally yeah it was it was really discouraging them because like I said like I mentioned the charges that were actually brought against him actually could not be said to be guilty of invading a duty a duty that you evaded had to exceed fifty thousand dollars the beauty you exceeded and the duty here we were talking about was three thousand dollars or less so in two days straight the language of their own law he could not have been arrested he could not have been put in jail he could not have had his passport taken away or been detained for the seven months that he was detained but we never got a chance to put forth our side amber amber not even in a safe way where you know yeah I think and then we were able to present it and you know it wasn't taken or it was just dismissed but we were never able to bring that back up that there's no way that he could you know that any of this was right and I think that was the most frustrating thing and then again like we you know see in all these cases they'll have a day in court and then the next one will be a couple months and next will be a couple months and in this case passerines next court date would have been September so the next day it was a long time for me to stay there yeah he would have been over there for almost a full year without ever being able to present his defense which was a perfect defense you know I'm gonna I'm gonna say this again I want to quickly go to that will take your calls by the way at eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten one eight hundred six eight four three one one zero and we'll talk about this we talk about the stimulus since to be joining us in the back half hour we'll talk about this for another segment as well other than that we'll get into more detail coming up and we'll take a call we come back from the break but talk about do it with the work that you coordinated human CC for NATO on Capitol Hill that's very important component to this yeah they're always two very important components to these cases J. one of course is the participation of ACLJ members to earn thousand of them were participants in this case but sometimes the publicity of these cases I will be more or less depending on what is needed in a given situation J. but what you always need is the unified voice of the United States government and you heard C. C. allude to this this administration has done this better than any previously and it starts at the very top president trump has made this a priority he has instructed the vice president to make it a priority he's instructed ambassador Brownback to make it a priority to really all levels of the U. S. government J. know that this is something the United States is gonna put an emphasis on even when it means you know economic talks or other are good things might take a a back burner so to speak they are going to focus on bringing American citizens and wrongfully held prisoners home and that was the case in this situation and I agree with CC having Pasternak and family come to the United States Senate and meet other senators put a face in front of a story and in front of a person in front of decision maker Ajay makes all the difference in the world finally there's any question at the end thank you for your hard work too thank you season where another statement on this we'll take your calls eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten if you ever thought about supporting the work.

"Thank you very much it's a real pleasure to be here and I know that might without my friends I think I would have had a very different audience but it's a real pleasure to be here at politics and prose and I think the people who were most responsible for making me write this book two of them are sitting in the audience my very good friends Phil Rosenau and and chip Rogers now the reason why I wrote this book and it came out on November fifth because I wanted to tell the north Koreans story to the American audience and I think for most Americans North Korea is a major I guess you know issue on the north Korean leader is considered to be somewhat of a very different leader and president trump as you all know has fallen in love with this guy and so you ask yourself how does Donald Trump managed to fall in love with Kim Jong un and then hoping that he will ultimately look and I've been studying this after the last thirty plus hearers and there were many people very good ones of books on North Korea and I ask myself why should I write one more I think part of the reason is because as someone who was born in Korea but raised in ten countries and having lived and studied in the US for many errors I really wanted to connect with a broader American audience and I as I recall as I was sitting at the bill's house and in the summer of two thousand seventeen and that was when as you recall there were missiles sure going back and forth and trump was telling the world you know I've got a bigger nuclear button ban and Kim Jong un and Kim juggling said you know I will blow up the White House and he just went on and so people were very very scared and I know that friends back in South Korea Americans were preparing for some type of an exit if there was a major crisis and so it took me two years since the summer of two thousand seventeen and you know as I said the book was just because it was published last week so one of the key messages that I want to I guess get from the sport and I guess the word and the number of motivations for me and the first is I wanted to describe not just can John Malone and the top leadership but to give the American people a sense of what the regime was about and you hear snippets from CNN or fox news and you see this guy with the funny hair cut and he's got nuclear weapons but it's also a very poor country in but if you and yet most people I guess who are not really special is don't know all that much about north Korea's I wanted to give a broader picture and I think for me as a career and today being veterans day as you recall thirty eight thousand Americans died in the Korean War I broke up in nineteen fifty fifty three and I remember several years back I wrote a I think it was in the Wall Street journal commemorating the Korean War and I said you know you match in eight and eighteen nineteen year old guy from Milwaukee has never been out of the state CSE spends couple weeks several weeks training and shipped off literally to this no man's land and he lands in Korea in the middle of the winter when it's like really really cold and you ask themselves what is this guy doing he must've asked himself you know what the heck am I doing in this land where I have no recollection of even hearing about it and yet nearly forty thousand Americans died and I think they died for reasons which was in a nutshell preserving liberty and democracy as as as I guess light weight as those words may sound particularly these days I see I sincerely believe that they did give their lives for a bigger costs and one reason is almost all the countries where American forces actually spill their blood after World War two I would argue that Korea is the only one that has become a market economy and a democracy and a thriving American partner is the world's eleven tortured accordingly so in a way I guess I'm coming back full circle because my father who is ninety two years old spent part of his hearers in in in the Korean War and then he brought back a number of Korean officers to be trained here the U. S. in the middle of the Korean War so I saw pictures of him as a young lieutenant Catholic leader on the captain at Fort Benning Georgia and so my idea was okay how can I tell the story to both returns back at home and in the north and in the north as well as two Americans so what's at stake wise crematory partly why is North Korea important well first of all because you don't know the bloody Korean War and that's something I think the Americans are trying very hard to prevent by having twenty thousand American forces in the are okay but North Korea is not just with nuclear weapons she has ICBMs bio chemical weapons some re launched ballistic missiles cyber weapons it is the one the only country in the world I would argue that has a comprehensive department store attitude towards military threats everything from eight is the and that's what North Korea has so I want to show the book that yes the ROK is worth preserving for these reasons the second I guess goal that is at stake is because regardless of how this whole thing comes out I hope there will be a unified Korea and this year two thousand and nineteen November as you know is the thirtieth anniversary with don fall of the Berlin Wall and I remember going to Berlin in nineteen ninety as a young man I was working at a think I can create that time and East Germany was still around Germany was lucky a unified and then I ask myself caution at what point will the two three is be unified if they do the big difference is I think German unification occurred when the Soviets were on their knees and if and when creating position does come by it'll happen when the Chinese are at the apex of their power so you have a very different your political environment lastly I think we are okay it is in my humble opinion a very pivotal US ally if you look at a map of Asia or Eurasia for that matter on the far end of Asia and the Asian peninsula caught continent the only place where you have American forces boots on the ground is in Korea and so you have twenty thousand American forces in South Korea with an airforce contingent on a very small naval footprint so that they serve not only to the turn North Korea but over the longer term I would argue constraining the actions of the Chinese so going back to hurricane I want to ask myself okay if I had to talk to someone who doesn't know North Korea what about three four take aways that I would like to I guess have on the audience the first is to give the impression that Kim Jong moon is not a before he comes across as a very different type of leader he was born in nineteen eighty three and ever since he was born into the Kim family he was groom to be either at the next great leader or one of the key of princesses McCann dynasty and you have to really imagine how the psychology of this regime is in nineteen forty eight when North Korea was founded by his grandfather Kim il sung he was planted by the Soviets and then his son Kim Jong il became the great leader when Kim il sung died in ninety four and when Kim Jong il died in two thousand and eleven his son took over but it wasn't really prepared that way because Kim Jong il has had three sons number one son came from his first wife four winds he had a second son who is the older brother of the cover north Korean leader Kim Jong one he's the guy who goes with Eric Clapton concerts all over the world and that is Kim Jong un and then he has a younger sister who had you have seen the news so in Korea bloodlines are really important so if you're born from another mother but have the same father the mother is really compete for who will be the next great leader and in this particular case Kim Jong one's mother make sure although she also passed away that her son would be in the running Chung mainly the her making and in the ways life was made easier for her because the number one son of all the movie was assassinated by Kim Jong going into thousand seventeen in Kuala Lumpur she visited Tokyo Disneyland in two thousand and one under a different passport he came in the Dominican Republic citizen with his wife and adding and his young son and so he was hot at the airport carrying bundles of cash so the Japanese you know got this guy and until then the number one song what's considered to be the crown prince and the guy will be the next king well his chances were basically caught in Tokyo since you came back Kim Jong il as you can imagine got totally live it and from then on he lived in exile in China and so in a way the leadership fell to Kim jong-un's lap and so in two thousand and eight his father had a massive stroke and in North Korea of course whenever something happens it leave nobody knows and then intelligence picked up the fact that the guy was sick they really weren't sure how how how how bad ones so that was when can draw on the site Kim Jong il decided my third son's going to be my successor and at that time he was in his mid twenties so you can imagine even though you are groomed to be the successor in North Korea this is the most hotel the Tory instead on earth and you have one point two million forces in the army you also have the world's most pervasive security apparatus so he's a kid and regardless of the Qin dynasty or a how can you go to your journals and say you know general can more general Parker generally I'm only twenty six seven years old but Hey you know what I got all the goods and so please trust in me and I think that's the the problem that he had but once the garden to Palmer over the last you know eight nine years Kim Jong moon now feels very comfortable what is catch twenty two is very simple in my humble opinion I just I love as well as he looks at the world and he sees China you know the world's second largest economy his biggest patron is like the world's most dynamic economy his arch enemy South Korea right across the border is a florist in market economy and a vibrant democracy his second arch enemy Japan is the world's third largest economy and his real arch enemy is across the Pacific and all his enemies are doing really well economically so he wants to transform North Korea but how could you do that that's his dilemma and the only way he can is to become the next China by opening up North Korea the movie opens it up you bring in information capital money technology people begin to ask questions and then his legitimacy begins to crumble so as a result although he wants to become the next on shopping in my view I don't think it's going to happen so the dilemma over time would become full recipe I I guess stronger I think in my book I also talk about the fact that all north Koreans avatars and if you see if you've seen the movie by James Cameron avatars.
