Reason's Howley Banned in Burma


From Will Wilkinson's blog, we learn that former Reason magazine staffer and current contributing editor Kerry Howley is not welcome in the nation of Burma. And that is almost certainly attributable in large part to her consistently observent and critical writings on the nation's tyrannous regime in our pages. (Howley lived in and worked as a journalist in Burma before joining Reason.)

In other Burma news, over at the American Conservative Jim Pittaway visits that grim nation after more than a decade of absence, is appalled by what he sees, and foresees the possibility of another nightmare Cambodia-in-the-70s situation when everything finally cracks.
