Slaughterhouse saviours with karma to burn

It was a fortuitous time for cows in Songkhla last Saturday when 10,000 of them were released from the steely jaws of a local slaughterhouse. That conjures up scenes of defiant bovines staging an uprising against their evil captors, not dissimilar to scenes from Ratchaprasong three years ago when the red shirts set fire to the city. 

I shall be crucified for making that analogy, but let it be said both scenarios are misleading _ the cows staged no such uprising, and I understand we are now to view those arsonists as national heroes.

I will leave the red shirt business to Voranai. Let me handle the bovines.
