People have been lighting candles lately for Burmese pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi, who turns 64 on Friday, but, sadly, they haven’t been birthday candles. Because Suu Kyi, who has spent 13 of the last 19 years under house arrest, should have been freed by now. But in May, the Myanmar government found yet another bullshit reason to keep her captive, and presently, she’s on trial for “subversion.”
