She’s taken now, boys

Sorry for the lack of posting: I’ve been busy scrapbooking Jenna’s wedding and weeping quiet tears of joy. Remember, we’re not losing a First Twin, we’re gaining a First Chinless Son-in-Law.

People are too hard on Burma’s military dictators. They are the most principled of men, diverting resources to holding elections on the date determined by law (and the best astrologers Burma has), even if the military has to be used to encourage the populace to vote for the junta of their choice rather than, say, helping save cyclone victims, and refugees have to be thrown out of schools so they can be used as polling stations. And as dedicated as they are to faux-democracy, they are no less committed to fulfilling their contractual obligations, exporting rice while tornado victims starve because, dammit, they signed a contract and their word is their bond! Bravo, I say, bravo.
