North: A Little Anime about Where Not to Emigrate

Apparently, North Korea held a repatriation program for Japanese of Korean heritage back in the early 1960′s. Since it really stunk to live as a Korean in Japan and never be able to become a citizen without changing your name to something Japanese, and since there were a lot of gullible Communist-sympathizing Japanese, a lot of people took the North Korean offer and moved to Pyongyang.


North
is an anime about just how bad a decision this was. (The trailer’s in English.) Being sneered at is annoying, but it beats a concentration camp.

Annoying Westboro Tachmonites at Funeral in Fairborn

Yeppers, America’s least favorite non-Christian religious group, the Westboro “Baptist” Church, is coming to Fairborn, Ohio to spread the Tachmonite word of hatred and conspicuous immaturity. Since Fairborn includes one of the oldest and most important Air Force bases in the United States, this seems like a Bad Plan. But then, their previous appearance at the funeral of a murdered Vandalia Marine woman wasn’t a good plan, either. The Patriot Riders and other folks will probably just crowd them out, and that will be that.

Information on Jesse Snow Jr.’s funeral at Mary Help of Christians, and the previous day’s viewing at Fairborn High School, is included in the article linked.
