In the news today…Myanmar may rush democracy leader’s trial"The lawyers of San Suu Kyi have expressed that Myanmar’s military regime appears to be rushing a trial of the democracy leader. The statement was seen as a pretext for the government to keep the Nobel laureate jailed through elections next year. Suu Kyi, who has been in detention without trial for more than 13 of the past 19 years, had been scheduled to be freed May 27th. Suu Kyi has been accused of violating her house arrest after an American man swam to and entered her lakeside home without her permission."
…Editor Rozek’s note: If I had a dollar for every guy who swam to the door of my home, I would have millions! His family described him as a “well-intentioned admirer of Suu Kyi who merely wanted to interview her.” Yeah…I know…but do you think the lake was good for the laptop he carried in the inside pocket of his jacket? I can see him standing on the bank across the lake from the home calling out, “San! San-a boo-boo! I admire you! Let down your hair!” She ran to the window and threw up the sash… “Alas, ole bank standing admirer,…but I can not come out! This ankle bracelet prevents me from reaching out to you!” He contemplated for what seemed like no longer than a split second as he slipped his computer into his pocket, took of his shoes and leaped into the water to get the interview he so had longed for! The hundreds of police in full riot gear with rifles stood along the bank as San watched the man doggie paddling in the middle of the lake with rifles pointed at him! “Freeze!”, yelled the police. He yelled back… “I already am! This water is freakin’ cold!” The police fished him out of the water and confiscated his computer in search of details that may lead them to the reason why this Nobel Peace laureate would want to try to help anyone at all!
