Welcome, President Obama
As an avid subscriber of your letters to the masses since your presidential campaign days and ardent supporter of your cause of hope, I welcome you on your maiden visit to my country.

Delivering to World
Recently, I had the chance to travel through the suburbs of Rome. Now, the Italian capital may well need no further introduction, but its surround areas are definitely lesser known to ordinary travelers, being parts of the wider Lazio region. Stig..

Lighten Up, Yale
There appears to be neither light nor truth in the way Yale University is handling the defamation case brought against it by Dongguk University over what the private U.S. college calls "innocent mistakes" for its role in helping trigger the Shin Je..

Gutless Ruling
The Constitution is meant to protect people's rights and the Constitutional Court exists to uphold its spirit based on the premise that all power comes from the people.

Mike, the Point Is ...
I enjoyed your column about my column. As usual, yours filled in parts left missing and straightened a skewed line of logic. I am writing today's column not as a "counter-column" to yours or with the intention of rebutting what you stated, but more..

Zero Sum Game
Looking at the heated debate over whether to abolish elitist foreign language schools, I can't help thinking that we Koreans are never Darwinian evolutionists but rather true believers in Schumpeter's theory of creative destruction with the emphasi..

Gwanghwamun Plaza Blues
Gwanghwamun Plaza sits in the wrong place. In the middle of roads with heavy traffic, it looks awkward and hazardous.

Why We Do Story on Champix
The reason why we are insisting on covering the side effects of Champix, Pfizer's smoking cessation drug, is not to penalize a multinational conglomerate on the basis of anti-globalization sentiment.

Tears of an Elderly
Even in this age of botox, laser treatments and other nip-and-tuck surgeries, the faces of our grandparents, chockfull of white hair, creases and slow smiles, are comforting to the young. The young, either unconsciously or consciously, realize that..

Mayor Ohs Folly
Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon is emulating what his predecessor, President Lee Myung-bak, did when he was the mayor in the lead-up to becoming the holder of the nation's highest office.

Chungs Road Not Taken
President Lee Myung-bak won applause by nominating former Seoul National University President Chung Un-chan as prime minister on Sept. 3. The appointment was a winning card for Lee as it coincided with his latest centrist-pragmatist direction, show..

Why Is Sports Better Than Politics?
Politics and sports are comparable because both are based on competition and produce moments of human triumph that are so moving as to bring spectators to tears.

Apology and Struggles
Chung Mong-joon, chairman of the governing Grand National Party (GNP), has apologized to members of the GNP secretariat for what he called a "thing" he did seven years ago.
