South Korea embarrassed by outdated law 

DIM BULB: South Korean officials said they were embarrassed by a 60-year-old law forcing them to give a woman only $4.33 as death compensation for her brother killed in combat during the 1950-53 Korean War. The woman was 2 years old when her brother died, but never knew of his existence until a neighbor happened to mention it. The South Korean government is now looking at passing a new law that would pay more generous war death benefits.
