Barack Obama's Diary: Bunsen Burma

Dear Diary: My main duty today-- aside from sticking my fingers into the ever-growing number of leaks in the dikes surrounding my administration -- was to meet with President Thein Sein of Myanmar [formerly Burma].  According to the talking points that I was handed just before welcoming him, Thein is a stranger to democratic principles which should make him feel right  at home with several of my czars. He might even get to like some of my dikes. But enough about me.
