Abhisit at the Copacabana

With his backers claiming victory in a parliamentary election, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said that he was prepared to return to Thailand.


The leader of the Democrat Party, Abhisit Vejjajiva, 43, is a boyish, British-born graduate of Eton and Oxford who says his favorite book is “The Myth of Sisyphus,” by Albert Camus. He says he is a devotee of the singer Barry Manilow, who is not widely known in Thailand.

Good thing Camus is dead. He might have killed himself if he ever read that his name was used in the same sentence as Barry Manilow.
