The North uses few, if any, modern loan words (Japanese and English origin). Keep the language pure. South Korea is littered with 'em. The Norks speak with a breathless enthusiasm; like every sentence is followed by a dozen exclamation marks. The written language is also littered with excessive exclamation marks, too. Whilst the evil doers don't embrace loan words, they've certain gone all-in for loan punctuation.
Didn't Obama carry the state in the 2008 caucus?
Dammit all! I only got 90% off. You always have da best codez. First at STP and now here. Anyway, bought three of those shearling coats just in case I gain or lose weight. Bunch of other stuff too, maybe too much for one geezer to own and wear. But it's the discount.
A wailing Korean is a fulfilled Korean.A fine opportunity to sever the beast's head was missed at Kim Il Sung's funeral. Here's hoping S. Korea won't let another opportunity slip away and this time will consume Pyongyang in a sea of fire.

Not a journalist here, but I recall a well-established rule where the acronym has to be spelled in its entirety first followed by it in parenthesis, e.g., Grand Old Party (GOP). Exceptions to this exist when the acronym is very well known, such as UN and NATO, and when the acronym has become a word, such as scuba and radar. Anyway, it's an easy enough fix; slow news day?
Bingo.Service industry jobs, particularly those food & beverage franchises, teach many important lessons; the one I took from mine was don't make a career of it.
Ought the pocket square compliment the kippah? Me thinks the most attractive ones are the kippot srugot, which are lovely crocheted. I like geometric patterns.
