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.”
