We Need a Hero

I usually steer clear of politics on this blog, but the way the current political situation stands in Thailand, I think this country needs a hero.  How about someone like Guan Yu, the Chinese General who lived during the period of the Eastern Han Dynasty?  Some Bangkok taxi drivers seem to really admire him.  With his red face and long flowing beard, he's known for his loyalty and righteousness.  But, maybe Guan Yu isn't the best choice if his blood red skin also represents anger. The last thing this place needs right now is another hot-head.
