I was tagged by both the Contentious Centrist and Martin to participate in this sentence game doohickey. Here’s how it goes:

4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Martin’s study of North Korea is one of the best out there, and if you have the patience to read the nearly 1000 page behemoth, your life will be better for it.

Page 123’s sixth, seventh, and eighth sentences are:

After using the term Juche in 1955 to describe his self reliant policy, Kim said little about it for awhile. By the early 1960s. though, Kim was tilting toward”

I am tagging Jams, Snoopy, Johnny, Ron, and Rafique.
