I read the following in the Digital Chosunilbo (online Korean News) and was moved to share it with you. I really don't know where to begin commenting on it.

Koreans Need More Babies Now: WHO Chief

The World Health Organization's director-general Lee Jong-wook has warned Korea could face a national crisis caused by its aging society and low birth rate. In a March 10 interview with the Chosun Ilbo, Lee urged Seoul to do everything in its power to encourage Koreans to have more babies.

Lee is the first Korean head of an international organization.

“If the problem is not tackled right now, it will be too late," Lee said. "Korea needs bold measures to encourage people to have more children and must think of ways of coping with the aging society and its health problems.”

He also wants to discourage young Koreans from becoming doctors, urging them to go into other fields instead.

Doesn't this sound like the perfect solution to Bush's so-called Social Security problem?
