April is the cruellest month for ex-Samsung chairman Lee

After special prosecutors in South Korea ended a three-month probe by indicting Lee Kun-hee on charges of evading 112.8 billion won ($113 million) in taxes last week, the troubled Samsung chairman said he would step down. He apologized for “troubles to the nation” but did not seem sorry at all about the crappy Samsung BlackJack.

“Until recent weeks, South Koreans were unaccustomed to hearing much publicly from Lee, who has been described as a loner with a fascination for gadgets and how they work,” an Associated Press story said. Something tells us he’ll be a loner after this is all over, too.
