Re: "Cue Frank Shinawatra", Letters, April 24.

I appreciate Somsak Pola's dig at my dryness. However, his recognition of the near-end of Thaksin's power is a pleasant surprise, coming as it does from a past defender of that man.

"My Way" is indeed an appropriate tune for Thaksin to be singing, but the lyrics of "Desperado" are also a timely wakeup call for our ex-premier:

"You been out ridin' fences for so long now,

Oh, you're a hard one,

I know that you got your reasons,

These things that are pleasin' you

Can hurt you somehow."
