Jena 6 & Myanmar: The Results

Two protests, two different outcomes. But i think both were predictable.

I'm very happy that Mychal Bell was released this week and hopefully it means he will get a fair trial here on out (doubt it, tho). But i'm sad that the brave folks in Myanmar are being forced to pay the ultimate price for their potential freedom. Sadly, their deliverance may not come any other way.

you're welcome. and yeah it's heartbreaking to see how those monks (and everyone else) have been beat down. i do hope they keep rising up tho. guess that's easy for me to say sittin safely in my office in the U.S. :(
