Welcome to Burma.com How's *this* for net access?! And we sometimes complain about how the government views the net in our own countries... fact is we don't know how good we've got it.

Now that, is extremely sad. I'm thankful for Democracy.

What a depressing article. You know, I'm so far submerged in the tank of middle-class-America that I completely forget there are real people living in places with such fundamental limitations on their lives. I spend all day walking around listening to my discman thinking "big, important thoughts" about my life, fate, The Future, and How Far We've Evolved, and then I email friends to tell them about my neat thoughts. These are the frivolous benefits of freedom and decomcracy. And we can't just mock Burma for passing foolish laws--their government actually works like this, is legitamately interested in limiting the spread of ideas.

Now I'm not feeling well. I'm going to go microwave a burrito and watch some Baywatch or CNN.
