Who'd a thunk? "The Korean kid" supplies comic relief in our time of Chechen terrorists at the 2013 Boston Marathon. True believers from Russia's North Caucasus region, with various stops along the way to this country, ended up in Cambridge, MA as students at local colleges. The hideous carnage from their bombing of downtown Boston near the Marathon finish line was followed by more carnage in Cambridge on Thursday night and early Friday morning. The elder terrorist (Tamerlan Tsarnaev) was killed in the firefight between the two brothers and Boston police. The younger terrorist (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev) fled the scene and is still at large and the target of a massive manhunt in the Boston area. However, that said, Kim Jong-un's nuclear threats against the United States are not funny, either. A curse upon both Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Kim Jong-un. If this is (fair & balanced) bloodlust, so be it.

The North Korean kid says that he's sure he
Can hit us Yanks with missiles in a hurry.
Is this for real? Should we begin to worry?
Is this guy's favor something we need curry
To keep the bombs from coming in a flurry?
If Rodman flees, we'll know it's time to scurry. Ω
