News you might have missed

From Korean Central News Agency of the DPRK. Trust me, this is a good one. As ever, I am NOT making this up.

"General Secretary Kim Jong Il sent vehicles and equipment to the Chongjin Goat Farm.
He gave field guidance to the farm in May last and advanced highly important tasks to be fulfilled in managing and operating it.
...
Speakers said that the vehicles and equipment carry the warm love of Kim Jong Il, tender-hearted father who is taking pains to provide the people with much more various dairy products, and his trust and expectation that the employees of the farm would achieve greater success in the efforts to realize the intention of the Party.
They called upon all the employees of the farm to always cherish deep in mind Kim Jong Il's on-site instructions and his warm benevolence and bring about a great advance in goat breeding and output of dairy products, thus contributing to the improvement of the people's livelihood".

A bit of digging throws up this gem on Chongjin: "It also has a zoo, but [it] currently has no animals in it".

Nick - Me too. When holidaying abroad in the 80s, many a happy hour was spent tuning in to Eastern Bloc propaganda stations. I was never very successful at picking them up when at home.
