A Couple of Blogs from Burma

It would be nice to think that this retrograde regime's days are numbered but I doubt it.


Now this is not something you see everyday -- which is precisely what the awful regime of Burma is trying to stop, you seeing, there dealing with the Monks -- Monks dedicated to peace engaged in fomenting civil reform with often bloody results. As is, the BBC has just noted that Burma's Internet has been cut off. Burma and North Korea now share this amongst many other worse kleptocratic regime commonplaces. Is it becoming a more or less inclusive club these days?

The BBC reports that the remnants of Alexei and Maria may have finally been found. In rather unrelated news, The Toronto Star seems all a flutter with news of remains found at the Don Jail.
