“We haven’t seen each other for so long, I have so much to tell you.”

So, it is reported, said Aung Saw Suu Kyi as she emerged from house arrest. You can read another report here. This is good news. But it hardly is cause for jubilation. Why? . . . well, the Burmese junta has freed one of the political prisoners they've been holding for years. That is a start. One outrage has ended for now. What about the anonymous thousands? What about the travesty elections that the regime just orchestrated?
