1:45 PM -- Amidst war and economic strife, leaders from all around the globe are making the ultimate sacrifice for their people. First our own President Bush, and now South Korea's President Lee Myung-bak, Reuters reports:

    South Korea's President Lee Myung-bak has told officials to give up golf for the moment because it sends the wrong signal just as the economy has hit the rough.

    "Golf is not bad but... as prices are unstable and the economic situation is not getting better, President Lee thinks they need to consider public sentiment," Yonhap news agency quoted a presidential Blue House official as saying.


The article, however, fails to mention whether or not Lee, "a keen tennis player," will put away his racket. Uh oh.
