Rodman spent the last several days in North Korea along with a crew from VICE and three members of the Harlem Globetrotters to film an episode of a forthcoming HBO series and take part in what VICE dubbed “basketball diplomacy.” While Rodman has been known for pulling crazy stunts during and after his time on the basketball court, a visit to the most reclusive country on Earth was unexpected.

I expect people to stop lying to them selves and trying to rationalize their despicable behavior. And I say that knowing that i am part of the 99% that is the problem.

except that 99.9% of that behavior is not really helping themselves. or you might say that it IS, except in a very unskillful, childish manner.

Why the vague title? Sometimes people are vague to draw people in, but Rodman's name would work better than being vague.
