Got to love him...really

Almost every home (including mine) and most businesses have a picture of the king. I think the affection is genuine. A 57 year old long time resident here from Switzerland found out how much trouble you can get into when you insult the king (he spray painted some pictures). As this article says...between 7 1/2 and 75 years in jail. Thankfully, Thai jails are known for their comfortable accomadations so he should enjoy his remaining days in comfort.

I've often wondered if it was a law

Crazy that it is not only a law but from what I can see everyone agrees with it.
