When in doubt, shut the fuck up.

Charles Robert Jenkins, an Army sergeant who became a Cold War enigma after he defected to North Korea in 1965 and was kept there for nearly 40 years, died Monday in Japan. He was 77.

His death was reported by the Kyodo News agency. The cause is not yet known, Kyodo said.

Mr. Jenkins, from Rich Square, N.C., was patrolling the demilitarized zone that separates North and South Korea when, drunk after 10 beers, he walked into the North in 1965 to avoid facing combat duty in Vietnam.

I guess he couldn't afford an airline ticket to Canada.
Do the right thing! Give Vince Young HIS Heisman Trophy! Jan. 4th 2006 he proved to the world who was the best player in college football for the 2005 season.
