The Way

The IHT’s interview with one of the rebel monks of Burma, who’s now in Thailand, is electrifying. This graf is not the most exciting, but it might be the most revelatory:

Ashin Kovida said he had led a week of daily protests, meeting with his group of organizers in the mornings and beginning the marches at noon. He heard reports on the Burmese-language service of the BBC about other monks who had organized themselves but he never met those groups.

Forget flash mobs; how about moral mobs?

Read the story; it’s amazing.
