One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Pyongyang Potemkin

What do you do if you’re part of the ruling cadre of a notoriously closed dictatorship, the “Dear Leader” who has ruled over the country for decades is incapacitated, or perhaps even dead, but you are determined to keep up your impoverished country’s Orwellian façade, conveying both its military might and the continued good health of its immortal autocrat?

Easy.  You just photoshop a picture of the “Dear Leader” in front of a bunch of uniformed, scary-looking soldiers.
