The bombings and the new year

There were a series of bombings in Bangkok last night that killed 3 people and injured 38. Stupid stuff. I , of course, immediately thought of Muslim extremist. The government does not know who did it but suspects those who lost out in the coup.

I feel a little bad about thinking about Muslims this way since I am friendly with a few Muslim families here.. They have a tradition of slaughtering an animal and inviting friends to eat at their home on December 31st. I was invited by a couple of families to join them for a meal. Good food, nice tradition, nice people.
