Just in case you haven't been paying attention
to what's happening in Myanmar (formerly Burma), check out yesterday's story at the NY Times as well as their slide show of pictures documenting the events of the past several days.
I'm particularly struck by the picture that opens the article -- the abandoned sandals in the alleyway is unsettling.
In the slideshow, the aerial shot of the protestors is also amazing -- thousands of people in the streets. And in the center of the street, that long ribbon of saffron colored robes.
