I try to write a brief article every week or so for And I try to keep up with what is being posted there. There is a fellow there who reports regularly from Nepal. He has been describing the perspective as a "king" who installed himself via a coup d' etat has been taking steps to consolidate power and repress the ability of people to make statements objecting to his dictatorial rule. Today he wrote that the opposition had called for a demonstration on Friday (today) and so the "king" arrested leaders of the opposition and has imposed a curfew: for the next three days it is illegal to leave your house. Cell phone service has been stopped and most network addresses are currently blocked. Can you imagine it?
