There is this small problem where I am right now, Bangkok has been declared under the stage of emergency with tanks rolling around near the government house. I didnt even know this until my friends parent phoned and woke her up because right now its 11.30pm. Its going to be interesting At my personal level, nothing is grave (I dont know whats happening tomorrow) and I send my condolescence to the Thai people. But may be it is also a good time to reflect that we should be grateful that we live in societies where the Natural Right of Liberty remains intact. P.S. If Im allowed to talk politics; for Thailand this may be for the better. The Prime Minister of Thailand has been alleged to accept kick backs from General Electric-ownedInVision Technologies from specs-locking and purchase of the CTX airport bomb scanners which is a subject of US Senate investigation and hear this, from the English language Thai newspapers I read that he sold of $1.8 billion in shares of his company and he didnt pay a penny in tax, I thought I was pretty good at evading tax!
