Note, they've selected Mick Hartley's blog post Ban Speaks Out which says a lot about their discerning taste. Someone has left a comment at Mick's post, saying:
Mick, your irreverence shocks me.
I feel like leaving this comment (but I won't because he enjoys being unkind and having a go):
Hey, pack it in Mick, you don't know what you're talking about when it comes to Ban Ki Moon and Sudan.
Ordinarily, I wouldn't bother ponting out his blog because he twists news too much for my taste but this time he went a step too far. I couldn't let him get away with insulting the great hardworking Ban Ki Moon for no good reason.

Here is a copy of my blog post at North Korea Watch, September 22, 2008.

Ban visits Republic of Korea for first time since taking helm at UN

This must be the trip of a lifetime for UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. My heart goes fuzzy warm whenever I see news or photos of him because he seems such a thoroughly decent and kind human being, the sort anyone would love to have as a relative. Even his name, Ban Ki Moon, sounds friendly and cheery.
