Kim and Kutuzov, Two Kinds of Drunks

The Gypsy Scholar delivers this news about the North Korean leader — Jong-un drunk when he ordered some purges.

I could not help but think of the great General Mikhail Kutuzov, depicted in Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace as drunk who sleeps all the time whose calculated inaction defeats Napoleon's invading armies and saves Holy Mother Russia.

There may not be two kinds of people in the world, but there could be two kimds of drunks.
