The U.S. government thinks the key to opening up North Korea could be Eric Clapton. South Korean intelligence reports

indicate the son of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il attended a Clapton concert in Singapore on Monday. U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowly tweeted, “Actually, the Dear Leader himself would benefit from getting out more often.” Then he tweeted, “Of course, there is nothing preventing Kim Jong Il from opening up North Korea so his people could enjoy Clapton, and maybe get more to eat.”
