Daily Kor for December 6, 2009: Redemption

Okay, so the great Kim Yuna has redeemed herself. There's nothing more to say. I was remiss in announcing her career and her popularity had come to a tumbling end. People shouldn't listen to me anyway; I'm a washed-up has-been sitting on a beach in Waikiki banging out random thoughts on a Mac keyboard.

  1. Thanks. Just so we're clear, #9 is the only one that's supposed to be funny.

    Hasn't this always been the policy?

  3. How dare you doubt the great Ms. Yuna Kim!

    Just for those blasphemous thoughts you are evil and wicked, your bones will dry-up and crumble to dust and the angels shall weep for you!

    Hey... I have to hold on to something... My Trojans lost again... :(

    Actually, I think they had a policy of arresting those who they caught trying to cross. And of course, some of them just simply got bribes from them.

    Shooting to kill is, I believe, an escalation of policy. Especially if the guards really do it.

    I love her, really! I just need to be smug, aloof, and snarky sometimes.

    Well, that would be a change of pace. Usually I'm weeping for the Angels.

    Lost Trojans... Failed Trojans... there's a birthrate-boosting policy somewhere in there.

  6. All I wanna say is that when you really need a Trojan, you don't want it to fail... ;)
