May the Sangka protect my mind and myself from meanness
May the Triple Gems protect my family from all misfortune

From Kom Chad Luek, April 13, 2008 - Interesting headline of the day. It reads: The Election Committee decided by 4-1 to disband the Chart Thai Party and the Matchima Thipataya Party. Sanan is dusting off the Mahachon Party [This last part means political king-maker Sanan is getting ready to start the Mahachon Party to create a new political block from the remnants of the two banned parties. The big letters in the headline read "disband" or "dissolve."]

From Kom Chad Luek, April 13, 2008 - More Songkran water splashing activities in the B section of the newspapers.
