"Ministry of Culture Bans People Named Porn"

BANGKOK - The Ministry of Culture announced today that it would impose a new ban on people named Porn, citing the name’s corrosive effect on Thai society and the damage it causes to the kingdom’s reputation abroad.

Ha ha ha.

If NotTheNation keeps this up, they could soon join the ranks of The Onion.

Suan Lum Night Bazar to morph into world tallest budilding?

I think Bangkok will miss the place if it leaves. It's a nice place for after hours shopping and enjoying some music. It's done well, and it will be a shame to loose it.

"The Nation" admits it 'creates' history

From the foot-in-mouth department, The Nation, admitted it's role in "creating history". I wonder how much of Thailand's history is just a creation of some editors there. Hmm..

And even more suspect. They will launch a new paper, Daily Xpress, today, but according to auditors of a not-yet-in-existence-paper, it already has: audited circulation of 100,000 copies daily, will debut tomorrow morning, with distribution all over Bangkok and in Pattaya, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Koh Samui.
