Hyundai Motor America named Jong Eun Kim its new head of North American operations Monday -- the latest in a string of executive shifts amid stalling U.S. sales. Kim, who takes his new post Jan. 1, will replace Ok Suk Koh, who will top Chinese operations for Kia Motors Corp. Hyundai is the largest stakeholder in Kia. Hyundai spokesman Jim Trainor called the change a "normal rotation, not unusual to the way Hyundai does business."

So North Korean propagandists are hard at work spinning Kim Jong Eun's youth into an asset, trying to convince a wary public that the youngest son of leader Kim Jong Il will bring the country lurching toward modernity. The ruling Workers' Party is convening a rare congress on Tuesday in Pyongyang to name the next generation of leadership.
