N. Korea May Be Reducing Reverence for Leader (washingtonpost.com): "North Korea's state media on Wednesday broke with the rigid codes it employs in referring to Kim, dropping the highest honorific title of 'great leader' from a report on his visit to a military base. Although the term was again picked up in later broadcasts, it marked the first such omission in coverage of an official Kim event since he inherited the title from his late father -- North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung -- a decade ago, according to Japan-based Radiopress Inc. which monitors North Korea's official media."


I trace this directly to John Kerry's infamous goose hunting expidition, which we were shown video (according to his press secretary - I kid you not) of so that we could relate to "John Kerry, the regular guy."
