Interesting turn of events

A delegation from North Korea has agreed to meet with New Mexico governor Bill Richardson. What their intentions are is anyone's guess at this point. Stay tuned...

"The governor will meet tomorrow in Santa Fe with a delegation from the North Korean mission to the United Nations," Richardson spokeswoman Alarie Ray-Garcia told AFP.

He said Kim Myong-Gil, a minister at the North Korean mission at the United Nations, had requested the meeting. The senior North Korean diplomat was to attend the talks with a deputy.

Is this a thawing of relations or has the recession reached North Korea? Time will tell.

They want to tour the big weapons research facility, Los Alamos?

Bill Richardson was going to North Korea to negotiate for the release of the two journalists, before Kim decided he wasn't a big enough catch and got Clinton instead. I would say there is definitely a thaw in the air.

Richardson has been there before; good choice.
