Dear Colleague: How I hate the front page story! It was depressing to research it and keep my eyes and ears tuned to the news. But North Korea and its threats and the U.S.'s counterthreats don't seem to disappear. Our older students need to know something of the tensions, background, and locations of the problems. (I'd skip this article for younger students. You be the judge.) And remember: Easy English NEWS does not have reporters on the scene, and can only provide second-hand information. We refrain from judgment as we cannot ascertain the truth, only the structures and vocabulary for talking about an issue.
