Readers will be interested to know that this is the 1000th New Mandala post since the site was launched on 16 June 2006. Since then we have also received well over 7000 comments from readers. Tonight will be a busy one for New Mandala, and for many of our regular contributors and commentators. Once the dust from the Thai election has settled Andrew and I will put together a more substantial post to mark this milestone and the end of 2007. In the meantime, we would just like to offer a big thank you to everyone for stopping by. And please don’t hesitate to get in touch: [email protected].
