Here we go again. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un might be in a coma, or already dead. So the rumors say. He has had some health problems, even a few operations.Each time he is not seen in public for a while, the rumors begin.This time the rumors began when Chang Song-min, former aide to the late S. Korean President Kim Dae-jung, told South Korean media about information he had received of the dictator being in a coma, or worse.As with rumors in the past there is nothing to go on other than no one has seen Kim Jong-un in public for a while. The last photos of him were in July. Nothing for August.If North Korea was more open, even just a little bit, we would not hear rumors like this every so often.Possibly the biggest fear everyone has is that while Jong-un has been bad, it would be his younger sister who would take over the family business. She is reported to be the most ruthless member of the family out of the three generations who have ruled North Korea.So the rumor is out there, again. Here we go with another wait and see.
