Word coming in that Laura Ling and Euna Lee, the two reporters for Current TV who were imprisoned in North Korea for illegally crossing the border into that closed nation, will be released. New York Times tweet. Looks like former US president Bill Clinton's mission was a success. Oh, and they're coming home on his private plane. What an utterly pimped-out ending to a very frightening saga for the women, and their families. May I be the umptybillionth person to say: Way to go, Mister Clinton, you are the man.
