its taken me a while to get this up, but go here for a great read on rogue monks in BKK selling meth to teenagers and then getting busted by undercover thai police spy monks. woah. thats some drama in real life right there.

and on to thai politics, where the monks are again messing shit up. seems there is a full on “black magic war” being waged between pro- and anti- Thaksin supporters. in fact, Thaksin’s (who is the reincarnation of the vengeful King Taksin the Great ) personal fortune-teller has told him that 2009 will be the worst year in recent history. may we live in interesting times…
