Virtuous politics

The month after he was re-elected, the governor of Bangkok resigns because of corruption charges.

So much for my assumption of a smooth democracy. On the other hand, perhaps one can argue this is an example of a political system working (eh, protesters, anyone).

Reelections held in January.

Speaking of Election Day, alcohol cannot be sold or served, even meaning a complete shut down of the city's red light districts. Now, DC residents, how would you have dealt with that if that happened on November 4th??
