North and South Korea to Resume Family Reunions

After weeks of deadlock, delegates from North and South Korea agreed to resume reunions of families separated by the Korean War. Reunions are anticipated to be held from October 30th through November 5th at the Mount Kumgang joint mountain resort area in North Korea. When two states agree about an issue, but have trouble reaching a final agreement, experience and good judgment commend that you track the money. Mount Kumgang is operated by South Korea, but at a profit for North Korea. South Korea caved to North Korean demands because the social pressure for resuming reunions in South Korea is irresistible; more powerful than all other considerations, including more cash to the North.

Ecuador President Accuses Police of Coup Attempt

Military vehicles patrolled the streets of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, over the weekend, but there have been no further protests since last week when army commandos rescued US-educated President Correa. Correa has embellished his rescue by accusing the police of attempting a coup. Correa is milking the crisis as a victim; he was in danger from an escalating street encounter that he provoked, which got out of control. The police had guns, a complaint about pay cuts, mobility, and an opportunity, but they had no plan - otherwise Correa would be dead. The police had Quito in their grasp, but no one took charge of the mutiny to convert it into a coup. There was no coup attempt.
