The Talented Mr. Kim

He's composed operas, he shoots 3-4 holes in one every time he hits the golf course, and it probably goes without saying that he's a superb thinker.

North Korea's Dear Leader Kim Jong-il doesn't (to our knowledge) leap tall buildings in a single bound, but he is pretty darn talented at whatever he turns his hand to.

Even apple retailing.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

In fruit retailing, it is absolutely vital to alternate colors in displays.
