Children of the Secret State

I'm teaching a world geography course this semester. I was looking to find this video called Children of the Secret State about North Korea DVD and found it for free on Google video and I've embedded it below. Chilling and sad... I'll be showing it next week in class.

The Fellas



The fellas -- Austin, Texas 2007. My college friend Phil Wilson had just been sworn in by Governor Rick Perry as Secretary of State of the Great State of Texas (he's 3d from the left). Good friends all and even though we don't talk as often as we'd like and we're a bit spread out across the western U.S. -- you'd never meet a greater group of guys. Outside of my marriage, my kids' births, and my faith -- I don't think I've ever had a prouder moment than sitting on the floor of the House of Representatives chamber at the state capitol and watching that ceremony.
