Nick Kasoff - The Thug Report

Funny how the Jefferson thing seems to have been forgotten by the MSM. He probably even got to keep the money. By the time the Republicans get the majority in Congress again, the statute of limitations will probably be up.

Ya, but can he figure out the Plame thing?


Chinese fireworks too funny.


To the administrator, I have several hundred accounts available I can use. Good luck.


Where's the poorly worded email from the former secretary/spouse/child of the North Korean Minister of Finance -- Macao Division?


Don't know if this exactly applies, but food for thought. When we are doing a bit longer than normal leg towards mainland Asia, and when Jet Stream headwind forecasts dictate significant fuel savings by overflying Russia, we wind up doing a route which exits us out of Russian Airspace into Pyongyang Center's control. We stick with the North Korean's for about 30 minutes, staying in their international airspace but well offshore, and on well defined and pre-approved routing. Exiting into Inchon Control, its an immediate hard right turn, then vectors toward Kimchee and some gawdawful local beer.
Two points.
(1) The English spoken by the North Korean controller is always excellent and always easier to understand than the average South Korean controller. I don't know if it's because maybe we are always talking to the same 1 or 2 guys and they just happen to be excellent, but that is the fact. Can't prove it, but I've done the trip a dozen times or so, and especially if you've got a new guy with you they are always amazed at where the heck we happen to be zippin' over, and how come those guys down there can speak English so well.
(2) We never overfly anywhere for free, so somebody, somewhere up there is getting paid off, whether or not its from Congressman Jefferson's icebox or The First National Savings and Distrust of Macao, etc.
