I am presently at work on a short essay regarding security at the North Korean-Chinese border with a focus on Onsong, the county where Laura Ling and Euna Lee were arrested/kidnapped/detained/spying/being clueless/whatever.  This involves a careful reading of the new editorial in the LA Times, correcting shoddy translations from the Chinese on the website Daily NK, and referencing long comments made previously on Joshua Stanton’s monumental (though certainly not monolithic) One Free Korea blog.   Should be up shortly.
