A 31-year-old Japanese lady who defected to North Korea two years ago has given up and redefected to Japan. She had earlier spent time in the Aum Shinrikyo. The BBC has a few more claims and rumors about her saga. Somehow, I find the Jenkins-Soga saga more scintillating.
You know, it's hard to find good utopias these days. The demand so far exceeds the supply that the price often takes a wasted lifetime to pay.
