Yes, he's my King too. We Americans are not big kingsters, but the King has earned my respect as I have come to understand his style and his life. He is a good man with a long record of hard work and selfless devotion to Thailand. That's "selfless," as in, he never got rich off of it. That's a rare claim-to-fame, these days.
December 5th is his birthday. Please join me in wishing him a happy day in the midst of all of this nonsense that's going on now. And many happy returns of the day, for all of our sakes.
