Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It’s a legal loophole with just the right touch of the absurd: The prime minister of Thailand is being court-ordered to resign because he violated the country’s constitution by accepting payment from a televised appearance — on a cooking show.

Among the political repercussions: Chairman Kaga likely can never run for public office, at least anywhere in Southeast Asia.

Speaking of “Iron Chef”, I only recently discovered that the original Kaga-headed series has been back on the air since May (albeit in reruns) on something called the Fine Living Network. It’s been re-branded slightly into “Iron Chef Japan”, which is fine by me, since that appropriately disassociates it from the crappy Americanized version.
