Soon, only English teachers can visit Jejudo.

According to the Joongang, "Beginning: Jeju to be mecca for English ed". And we all know that non-muslims are not allowed in Mecca.  Therefore, only English educators would be allowed in Jejudo.

Man, will visiting it worth it if we have to pray to Jack Richards *and the like five times a day?
* I like the guy and his books, btw. Its just that when I think of BIG ESL I think of his Interchange series.

I notice that the Korean media loves to use the word "mecca." I wonder how Muslims feel about that.

I hadn't noticed, but I will look for it now.

I notice that the Korean blogosphere loves to use the name 'Brian'. I had to OK your comment (I would've anyway-regardless of who sent it), then visit my blog to see which Brian you were. There are at least three Brians currently blogging plus another Brian with the same last name as mine, in Kyeonggi, who used to post stuff online, although I am not sure if he had a blog.

Formatting troubles with the Apple again?

Marcus, you don't think I planned to write in three different fonts, from crazy large to tiny?

Yes, formatting doesn't seem to be a big problem until I return to edit a post; at which point the font sizes are crazy. Other than follow you to wordpress, I don't know what the solution is.
