A deserved rest

Honestly, I feel like I’m more worked up about the state of democracy in Thailand than Thailand’s deposed prime minister, whose reaction to the coup is to take a “deserved rest.” I wasn’t expecting him to go into the jungle and lead a rag-tag but plucky resistance, but c’mon. Meanwhile, the king has finally given his public blessing to the coup, and the coup leader Generalissimo Sonthi Boonyaratglin had some sort of ceremony kneeling in front of a framed photo of the king.

In Amsterdam, an artist has put a car on stilts and replaced its back seat with a mattress, and couples can spend the night in it if they write him an essay explaining why they want to.
