Michael Malice: Kim Jong Il’s unofficial ghostwriter

Despite humor, book on North Korean absurdities has a serious message

If some of the stories that the North Koreans told their people about Kim Jong Il's life are true, Michael Malice jokes that everyone in the country would have to be "high-functioning learning disabled.”

He points to a story he read from 1982, when the Dear Leader was presiding over the construction of the Tower of the Juche Idea in Pyongyang.
