Weird Democracy

Tim reminded me that Bangladesh is having elections again after a long hiatus from democracy.

Ah, Bangladesh. The candidates this time around are the same two candidates they’ve had for about 20 years: one the daughter of a murderer Bangladeshi politician, the other the wife of a murdered Bangladeshi politician, each now a titan in her own right.

It’d be great real-life Shakespeare if it wasn’t such a drag for Bangladesh: Neither has proven to be much good for the country.

Can somebody put BRAC in charge already?
