You Are Worthless, Alec Baldwin


Freedom House is holding a conference on human rights in North Korea today in D.C. I'm not exactly sure when conservatives wrested the North Korea rights issue from the Free Tibet/Burma/Mumia contingent, but at the Mayflower Hotel this morning, there was not an unwashed college kid in sight. For $40, however, you can pick up a needlework picture of Jesus cross-stitched by a North Korean defector. The Chuck Colson table was swamped. On the agenda aren't famine and torture so much as religious persecution and sex slavery. And with the usual activists out of the way, there's not much peacenik-ing to be had. It's not exactly a pro-invasion pep rally over there, but the selection of the keynote speaker says something: the president's second favorite philosopher, Natan Sharansky.
