Burma Shave

So it turns out that the Burmese people actually like democracy...altho only 45 seats were up for grabs, the Aung Sun Suu Kyi led National League for Democracy swept nearly all the available seats, 43.
And while this is a small fraction of the available power (in total, the legislature in both houses numbers over 500, with the military junta apportioned about 1/3 to hand-pick legislators), it's a signal of the dynamic of the population.
