OK, I screwed up. There was no curfew last night. I blame a previously reliable source, the sort of "pal" who confirms to The Sun that someone out of Girls Aloud is going out with someone who was on Microcelebrity Arse Wax Uncut.
Anyway, Bangkoup seems to be back to its smelly, noisy self, with a few exceptions. There are armed troops patrolling some of the big road intersections, while the regular traffic cops put their feet up. The latter aren't happy with the situation, since they're unable to follow their usual routine of approaching drivers for, um, contributions towards the police benevolent fund. There are some good pics at 2bangkok; and RLP is in town, so expect more pungent analysis soon.
On a slightly less tanks-and-soldiers-heavy note, James Blue Cat reminded me how good this is:
One to ponder the next time we see Dr House doodling on his Bechstein as he broods on his secret longing for Wilson.
