Because we can't fathom a civic leader having guilt, a sense of devotion to their constituents, or a strong enough moral character to take any action based on that remorse (Although he certainly took it too far)?

Teacher Fired for getting H1N1 virus

It's not surprising, but just for the record, it did in fact happen. Just thought I'd drop in the latest news since no one has posted lately; and also add a bit of my personal experience.

We all know that as noncitizens we do have a certain vulnerablity. I heard that Korea is one of only three countries in the world that restricts entry due to HIV status. I got a false positive and it was pretty traumatic. The nurse came out waving the paper around with HIV+ in letters about an inch high on the top for all the world to see. I had to pay for a second test in order to stay in the country and keep my job. It all worked out in the end and I love my job. There is a reason why we put up with certain indignities. For those of us who stay, it's worth it. 

I'm just happy to find Radio Paradise. I really like the mix.  I do hope I'll get back to live in the US someday. For now RP brings a little bit of home and reminds me of many of people I once knew.

Analyst fired for saying greed is bad

SEOUL (Reuters) - A South Korean financial researcher was fired for telling a TV talk show that people made unwise investment decisions because they were too greedy, his company said Friday.

Han Sang-choon, deputy head of Mirae Asset Investment Education Institute, said investors ignored warnings over the past few months that trouble lay ahead for stocks and held on to funds thinking a big pay day was just around the corner.

"I reckon people haven't cashed in their funds because of personal greed and expectations (of profits)," he told an investor, according to quotes from the Friday TV show that appeared widely in South Korean media.

Even though Seoul shares ended down 2.73 percent on Friday for their lowest close since late October 2005, brokerage Mirae Asset did not like the investment advice.

"Therefore, we decided to sack our deputy head, Han Sang-choon, who gave individual views out of line with our institute's original purpose, and caused concern to investors," Kang Chang-hee, the head of the company's research institute said in a written statement.

Han could not be reached for comment.
