International Update: South Korea

This is a great story. At first, I thought it was just another story about Byron Brown's son. Then I realized it was about a woman in South Korea who passed the written part of her driving permit application on her 950th try. 68 year old Cha Sa-soon (no relation to Israeli hairdresser Vidal Sassoon) took the test almost daily for four years. She wants a license so she can sell her vegetables in a small truck.

She finally scored the minimum of 60 out of 100 to pass the test. Score one for persistence and determination. Now, only two questions remain: Does she actually know how to drive? Will I have pizza for lunch? Something tells me, we'll find out the answers to both soon.
