Weird Golf Story Of The Week:
The South Korean Prime minister is under political fire for his golf habit. An editorial in the Joong Ang Daily excoriates Mr. Lee for playing golf during national crises:
Mr. Lee is going too far to say that he was playing golf as a hobby. We hear too much gossip and criticism over his playing golf. Immediately before showing respect to the dead in September 2004 after an accidental shooting in the nation’s military, Mr. Lee was criticized for playing golf. When a forest fire broke out in Gangwon province in April last year and the nation’s southern regions were suffering from flood damage in July, he was also playing golf.
Geeze. How would they have felt about Eisenhower?
