    Better that the fairies that roam in packs on Sukhumwit.

    That probably exceeds my screen time in The Deer Hunter.

    Global RIP thread

    70 isn't old these days, but considering his career I suppose it's a wonder he lived as long as he did.

    Nation - is set to shutter its printed editions

    In compensation for the declining news coverage, I offer you this. https://www.pinterest.com/KhanhAn999/thailand-dress/?fbclid=IwAR15RJIDwTQr3mMHua1q0NJ6PLRBxRVZGn0kJBNfbyi7b48itQGfM-OAOEU

    Nation - is set to shutter its printed editions

    Meanwhile, back at the topic ... The Bangkok Post has now effed up its on line news to become simply a web site. It no longer bears any resemblance to a newspaper. Furthermore, it doesn't seem possible to post links to it, since the links take you back to the main page ... not the news report. So much for that. If the Post drops its print edition, they may as well hang it up. Oh, well ... there's still KhaoSod English. This is what happens when you let computer swots get their hands on a newspaper. The Nation on line still seems to be the Nation, so far.

    Insurance mandatory for long-stay foreigners

    Thailand is sort of like the Democrats in the US Congress.

    That the looniest religion of all is taking over the world?

    Latest consensus is that the insurance thing applies to people applying for an O visa outside of Thailand for the first time. But a friend spoke to someone at Immigration, who told him they don't even know yet.

    Nation - is set to shutter its printed editions

    You probably weren't around in the days when everything you bought in Thai markets and from street vendors came in paper bags made from recycled newspapers and magazines. If it wasn't that, it was wrapped in banana leaves. Then the plastic bag monster arrived and took over to the extent that it's ruining the country and oceans.

    😮 Print journalism is on its last legs. In the 1980s I made extra money to supplement my income by freelance writing for The Post, The Nation, The World, Asia Magazine etc. Now only the Post and Nation are still around, and they no longer pay freelancers. They want you to be happy with a byline. Well, a byline won't buy you a damned thing, plus I'd stopped writing under my real name anyway. People just aren't reading, except on the internet, and I wonder if the Post will soon follow suit.
