Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Thai Red Shirt Protests

Thailand has a political system where people declare their political allegiance by wearing their party colors. News From the Bangkok Post

"Reinforcements of troops have been called from the Second and Third Army Regions to the 11th Infantry Regiment in Bangkok after the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship announced red-shirt protesters would go there on Monday if the government did not respond to its call for House dissolution, said the website of the peace-keeping operation centre."  

My daughter works in Bangkok. For the past week she has been traveling in Laos, keeping an eye on the Red Shirt protests before returning.

Hope she stays safe and clear of any harm.

(btw, wish they would have picked another color besides red...color of the PSUV [Chavez's party] here in Venezuela)
