    LOL - people seem desperate to try to sort him out.


    I don't know - Rodman is being Rodman?

May actually be a good way to help to at least start to soften the North Korean stance toward the west - Bill Richardson's self-promotion vis-a-vis North Korea isn't any better, in my view.

    Tall black men who play basketball are of interest to Kim, the other fellow just wouldn't take his call.

    Maybe some of you old guys will get it. Every journey begins with a single step. Think of China and a game of ping-pong.

    I never heard of Rodman before these events. I'm not interested in sports. But as far as I'm concerned, the guy is a hero and has accomplished more than our wealthy rulers have.

    When it comes to my opinions on government and on foreign policy, I sure don't get them froim Rodman or pay him one iota bit of attention.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah, this is pretty fascinating actually. There's got to be something going on behind the scenes here. I would hope that Rodman wouldn't be buddy buddy with a dictator that keeps a significant percentage of his population on the verge of starvation and in prison camps, has his ex-girlfriend executed, and routinely threatens nuclear war without any political or humanitarian motive in mind. Then again...

    True, but he's the only celeb "friend" of Jong-Un so maybe, even though its intellectually painful to think about, he may actually be useful.

    Ooh, Lordy, I'd hate to know that the fate of the free world rested in the hands of Dennis Rodman.

    Time will tell, but I am fully the skeptic on this.
