Smiley Masks

Yesterday's posting was pretty depressing regarding the state of affairs in our law enforcement agencies. So I am incorporating this news from The New York TimesAsia Pacific about this latest version of the famous Thai smile – motorcycle policemen with a bright red goofy grin painted onto their white anti-pollution masks. For the first week of the year – and longer if people seem to be smiling back – highway policemen in Thailand will wear the masks "to lift the mood of motorists," according to police officials (December 29, 2008). Will there be reciprocity or will people be put off? Hmmnnn, this is all very interesting...
