2016-10-11 "South Koreans don't care"

People say it about many issues, including about NK refugees. But it does seem that we are making some progress. Looking around the office, South Koreans are coming to us...

* 김유리 comes in Tuesday mornings for three hours. This time she decorated the office, corrected the name plate on my door, and made calls to South Koreans who joined our Open House on Sunday.

* We had two South Koreans join us today as in-house tutors.
* Youngmin Kwon is at the office all of the time now, he seems to be another piece of furniture at the office.
* A documentary director will be visiting either today or tomorrow, he wants to help TNKR with making some videos.
* Tonight two more South Koreans will be dropping by to discuss how they can highlight TNKR in a podcast.
* We now have four South Koreans who are monthly donors to TNKR. 
TNKR이 정기후원자들을 위한 CMS도 개설하였습니다. 이 또한 시작이라고 생각합니다. 지금까지 후원해주시고, 지원해주신 모든분들께 감사드리며, 저희 TNKR이 좀더 성장할 수있도록 도움주시길 원하시는분들 계시다면 함께해주세요:)

Okay, it won't save the world, but it is still great to have South Koreans volunteering with TNKR.

The Casey Lartigue Show

Guests scheduled for May NOTE: Check here for updates on Memorandum 46! Future Shows Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution This is my first attempt at putting together my own promo , it was rejected because of the sound quality May 19 edition of the Casey Lartigue Show We had a great show yesterday, probably the best so far. The topic: Malcolm X. The occasion? Anniversary of his 82nd birthday. Eliot Morgan and I had a great time talking with the callers. Deneen Borelli called in on our special guest line. You can download the file here. We posed the question: What did Malcolm X do? We contrasted the viewpoint and legacies of Malcolm X and Thurgood Marshall. The one mistake I made was not to focus on the question that Marshall asked: What was the one concrete thing that Malcolm X did. In segment 3, callers begin to get personal with us.

2016-11-03 Who is Andrei Lankov?

Disclaimer: NK experts, please don't read this, there will be no rabbits pulled out of a hat. * * * Every couple of months, I meet up with Andrei Lankov to discuss various things. I first met him back in 2011, shortly before he spoke at an event I organized with the Center for Free Enterprise. I have read his articles for years, he has spoken at about four TNKR events over the years. When it comes to analyzing NK, he is one of the leading experts in the field. Last March, I was one of the organizers of the first (and perhaps last) International Volunteers Workshop, we had 227 RSVP in advance. I asked them all as part of the RSVP: "The keynote speaker will be Andrei Lankov. Had you heard of him before hearing about this event?" No: 133 Yes: 94 Even within those 94 "Yes" responses, I am sure there were various levels of awareness--such as some may have seen his name, others may have read some articles, and a few experts may have the Andrei La

2014-07-01 Happy Birthday, Joo Yeon Cho!

Can it be true? I have known Joo Yeon Cho for less than 9 months? Incredible! But I guess that's the way it is with Joo Yeon. I'm not surprised to see so many birthday messages coming from all over Korea and the world. She works for a company that could crush me and everyone I know, but she still calls me "Boss."^^ I checked my emails, she first emailed me back on October 14, and I was surprise d to see it was 2013, not 2012 or even earlier. She wanted to join as a volunteer at the Mulmangcho School. I quickly recognized she was a special lady. She didn't know it, but I had already decided that she would help me with a special project I had planned with Praise Ju that I was going to launch two days later. They hit it off, and the project took off! We are collaborating again--she started off as the first Academic Adviser in the Teach North Korean Refugees Project, and she is now our first External Coordinator. As I posted a few days ago, she regularly blows u
