Article: a dissident returns to Burma
Today's Chicago Tribune has an article by Min Zin, and his reflections upon returning to Burma after having fled as a dissident about 20 years ago. Its an interesting read.

I was not able to copy and paste either the article, or the url, presumably as its part of the Chicago Tribune's "digital plus" content. I presume you can read it by signing up for a trial membership, or perhaps by googling Zin's name and the title "An exiled journalist returns to a changed Myanmar" and finding an outside link that will take you to the article.

Thanks, Hanuman.

For others interested in Burma, this is an article well worth reading. He captures the contradictions of the current situation well, I think.
