Long Live The King

Coming out of China and Vietnam where all the bills have pictures of Mao and Ho Chi Minh, I just thought he was another past dictator…. In movie theaters before every movie there is a brief film that plays during which you MUST stand up, pay your respects to His Majesty, and watch images from the 70s of the king working to benefit Thailand…. Twice a day a call goes out over loudspeakers and all people must stand at attention while a tribute to the king plays…. He has won the respect of all his people, but all I can say is I don’t want to have to stand up at another movie theatre and I don’t want to have to listen to any more tributes.
