Hoping for a quick return home for Mr Newman, but hard to feel completely sympathetic. Those State Dept warnings aren't just for kicks. Hopefully others will learn from this.

N. Korea... Really? Of all the places he could have gone he chose to North Korea?

You play with matches you just might get burned. Hope he's OK.
