MYANMAR/BURMA — What possible reasons Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon could have to be hopeful about the election of Thein Sein and his vice presidents I can’t imagine.

From the UN News Centre:

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today… voiced hope that the move marks the beginning of a change in the status-quo in the South-East Asian country.

[Ki-moon] “hopes that it leads to the formation of a more inclusive civilian government that is broadly representative of all parties relevant to national reconciliation and more responsive to the aspirations of the people of Myanmar.”

What do you do when you have Willy Wonka as the head of the United Nations?

Do what you can to make this a good morning, Myanmar.
