According to a Time Magazine Article Dennis Rodman is heading back to North Korea. This trip will be the former Chicago Bulls Forward third to North Korea.

North Korea, you may recall, made headlines recently when their leader, Kim Jong Un, publicly executed his uncle, a high ranking party official.

“It has nothing to do with me. I mean, whatever his uncle has done, and whoever’s done anything in North Korea, I have no control over that,” Rodman told Reuters from his hotel in Beijing. “I mean, these things have been going on for years and years and years.

“I’m just going over there to do a basketball game and have some fun,” Rodman said.

North Korea has some of the highest rates of incarcerations in the world, with some 150,000 to 200,000 incarcerated based on reports from defectors. Sadly, this works out to between 600 and 800 per 100,000, or a level comparative to the United States. But that's a topic for another diary.
