Today, the verdict regarding Thaksin Shinawatra's 76 billion dollars baht of frozen assets will be read in Bangkok. Many pundits view this as a major turning point in the Rubik's Cube of Thailand's shape-shifting, color-coded politics. It seems to me that things will remain mostly calm in Bangkok, and the Red Shirts - Thaksin backers - will air their (significant) grievances at another date. They seem to be moving beyond Mister T as a figurehead, and that's a certainly good thing. Plus, I've got to meet someone for coffee at the mall.
So I was relieved to read this story in the Bangkok Post, that assures readers that no matter what happens in our restive capital, malls got their shit under control. Thank goodness. I wouldn't want to see the hallowed halls of Paragon and Central World play host to political mayhem just yet - plus, they've got some great sales going on at the moment.
