Letters to the Editor: Kanye West’s antisemitism is sadly familiar. Our response doesn’t have to be: Do not buy his new album in stores.
The Daily News is reporting that Kim Jong-un will be traveling to New York on Saturday to speak at the High Museum. The event will be broadcast live for the first time. Kim will also be making a speech at UNESCO’s meeting on International Culture Day on Sept. 23 at the UN headquarters in New York.
At a recent luncheon for the UN and UNESCO, I asked one of the ambassadors from North Korea, who I had never met. He mentioned a new exhibit of the Kim family and how they are not considered a museum. He asked, “What about the museum?” I answered, “Why can’t they be a museum?”

My question to Kim Jong-un is simple: If you are interested in world peace and harmony, what do you need to do to achieve it? What are the actions you need to take to make them come to pass?
I hope that by the time you arrive in New York that you have taken what you need to take to make the world a better place.
