As Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Inauguration Day draw near in the United States, I am thinking about dreams. Here in Korea, MLK day has come and gone, and it's already January 20th. I know lots of you can't wait to hear how this historic inauguration goes, so I'll let you know hours before you can see it in the states. Stories from Korea is always ahead of the curve!
My dreams are more modest; I don't even want to be president. Good thing, too, because I think there might be some highly incriminating photos out there somewhere. No, I just want to be Queen of the Universe, and when I am:
1. Military spouses will never, ever be referred to as 'dependents'.
2. There will be a stroller/wheelchair ramp on every single sidewalk/road crossing.
3. Formula companies will be prohibited from their evil and deceptive marketing practices across the world.
4. The greedy, ruinous activities of paid special interests lobbyists will stop, saving our democracy from a slow, ugly death.
That's it. For the first day. Next on my list is 'evil dictators', followed closely by a variety of bad '-ists' and '-iles': racists, misogynists, conformists and pedophiles, to name just a few.
