You aren't going to believe this

SANTA FE — The world is going crazy folks. I don’t know how else to explain some recent occurrences.
The most unbelievable event was basketball star Dennis Rodman’s two-day visit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Rodman was the bad boy of basketball while he played in the NBA.
The United States has had no contact with North Korea, the bad boys of the world, for 15 years or so except for a few ill-fated secret talks.
That is why the U,.S. State Department was so upset when Bill Richardson accompanied the head of Google to North Korea a few weeks ago. Richardson and Co. never got close to Kim Jong Un.
But Rodman and a basketball team arrived in town and had Un hugging and kissing Rodman during two days of basketball games.
Evidently Rodman has been a favorite of Un’s for many years. Un likes basketball and especially likes Rodman’s style. Could the reason be that they both are bad boys?
Back during the “ping pong diplomacy” with China in the early 1970s, it was frequently said that only Richard Nixon could go to China.
It is highly unlikely that anyone is going to venture that only Rodman could go to North Korea.
U.S. officials certainly aren’t saying it. Rodham came home to tell President Barack Obama that all Kim Jong Un wanted was for Obama to call him.
