Home Of The Hard Sun

I rag on the MSM a lot cuz they deserve it a lot; but not always, as this story on a Cambodian refugee's visit "home" will attest:

For 12 to 16 hours a day, in a Spean Krong labor camp, they harvested rice, dug irrigation canals, and built dikes. They ate rice gruel during communal meals; some days there was no food. At mandatory night meetings, they were told it was Year Zero and to forget their past.

Read it all. It's from the Philly Inquirer.
