Simon, thanks again for the linkage. I am resistant on using the name Myanmar for the country, but I do accept it as the dominant international practice.
Hey, just wanted to let you know your link to the story on the 8th century toilet goes to the Asahi Japanese news site. My translation of it is here for those who don't read Japanese. Great site you've got here, by the way.posted by: Adamu on 10.21.04 at 06:57 PM [permalink]

For the record, I have to force myself to use some of the 'new' names chosen by democratically elected governments (i.e., Bombay and Pusan come more naturally to me than Mumbai or Busan). I just try to be a stylebook junkie. It pays the bills.posted by: myrick on 10.23.04 at 10:11 AM [permalink]
