Say It With a Mushroom Cloud 

It appears that North Korea may have detonated a nuclear device Thursday on the occasion of the anniversary of the founding of the country. A South Korean news agency is reporting a mushroom cloud over 2 miles in diameter, and a crater that was spotted by satellite. From the AP report:
"North Korea was founded Sept. 9, 1948. Leader Kim Jong Il uses the occasion to stage performances and other events to bolster loyalty among the impoverished North Korean population. "

Nothing like a big explosion to rally the impoverished citizenry. Of course, food would be good too if they felt like going that route.
