There's a coup in every corner

just not in mine (yet)

And I thought the coup would be in my classroom. Instead, it's going on in the land of my birth.

Though the Beeb doesn't seem to believe it's actually happening (notice the quotation marks around its lead headline).

ETA: Well, it appears as though there was a coup after all. Later headlines seem to confirm this, and also point out the rather nifty information that both the Thaksin government (supposedly ousted) and the military coup leaders are claiming they are the legitimate head of state. I propose a WWE-style battle royale to determine the winner, who then gets wear a lyotard to future United Nations General Assembly meetings.
