Nepalese doings

Robert Mayer (blogging at Publius Pundit) has a theory about predicting when a revolution will succeed: when the "protest babes" show up, the revolution is about to be won. Hence his conclusion about the democratic revolution in Nepal, as the protest babes (like the one at right) are there.

Three months ago, King Gyanendra seized power and declared a state of emergency. The state of emergency was lifted on Saturday, but the king still holds all power. Yesterday there was a large protest for democracy, where the babes showed up. Even if you don't completely subscribe to Mr. Mayer's theory, it's all still good news. Read his post (linked above) for all the details...
