You Gotta Live Your Dream

From The Daily Mail:

The American who tore up his own tourist visa on landing in North Korea and demanded to be arrested so that he could experience prison life in the communist nation has been sentenced to six years hard labor for entering the country illegally to commit espionage.

Matthew Miller, 24, of Bakersfield, California, looked thin and pale at his trial in Pyongyang on Sunday, as he was handed out his sentence.

I have no doubt Matthew is a progressive who believes, in his heart, life under Communism - even in prison - is better than living free in America. If that's his view, then he should have the opportunity to pursue it. There's nothing more American than that.

I'm so happy for him.
