Don't Be Bought by Those Slickers


An angel sends me this scan of the backpage of the New Light of Myanmar. Note the text at the bottom: "Eleven violent protestors were arrested together with one-12 inch knife, one pointed thin iron rod, a pair of scissors, five catapults, marbles, nuts, fighting peacock flags, headbands bearing the picture of US eagles, cards of Level II English course conducted at the American Centre, illegal gambling tickets and anti-government leaflets." Is the idea here that they were going to use the nuts and marbles to overthrow the Tatmadaw? At least we know they're outlaws because of the lottery tickets.
