I can hardly agree with anything Steve Bannon says, but when he says "The Trump presidency is over!" I wish he's right, just hoping the Americans don't get from the frying pan into the fire.

Steve Bannon bye bye! Wasn't the right person for that job anyway. When das Trump fire himself?
 A two-storey school building in Nong Bua Lamphu’s Nonesung was burned down on Thursday night.

The Nonesung police station was alerted of the fire at Ban Nong Kung Khamhai School at 9.30pm and alerted fire stations who sent seven fire engines to tackle the blaze.

Firefighters took about 40 minutes to control the blaze.

The fire destroyed the entire building, leaving only concrete walls on the ground floor and poles on the second floor.

 Thongsai Chula, a teacher who was on duty, said he heard three explosions and saw the blaze spread quickly from the ground floor.

Owart Srichanwiang, the director of the school, said the building was built in 1981. The upper floor was made of wood and housed six classrooms. The ground floor was used as a teachers' meeting room, a computer laboratory with 10 computers and a first-aid room. He said all the school’s computers have been lost.

Korat News / Hungry elephants raid farms in Korat

NAKHON RATCHASIMA - A large herd of hungry elephants have raided crops in Soeng Sang district, pillaging almost 30 rai of their favourite farm produce, sugarcane and corn.

Local officials on Thursday surveyed the damage to crops in tambon Ban Rart. Based on the extent of the  damage, they estimated the herd to be at least 20 strong.

Farmers said they took turns guarding their crops, but had failed in their efforts to drive away the elephants. There were just too many, and nobody dared to anger them.

Their farms are near Thap Lan National Park, a vast area of forest. They did not know which direction the elephants would come from and this made it even harder to guard their crops.

Pimpaporn Rujinrachet, assistant chief of Ban Rart tambon administration organisation, said the elephants had come out of the forest in search of food earlier than usual this year.

Normally, they emerged only during the dry season, when food was often scarce in the park's forest.

The large herd may have depleted their natural supply of food early and turned to raiding local farmland, where their favourite crops, especially sugarcane and corn, were growing.

The TAO would send staff to make joint patrols with the local people, and hopefully keep away the raiding elephants. Help would be provided for farmers whose crops were ruined, Ms Pimpaporn said.

How about giving it a rest now? What needed to be said in response to Roger's provocation, that he would usually not post here, that unusual circumstances have to be created for him to post, has been said by now. He can change his attitude, accept and follow common forum rules and integrate or remain a reader only. :)

When forums reach a certain age, there is always a struggle. Old members loose interest or cannot contribute anymore. Newbies will not come and integrate so easily. Roger kept reaching for the steering wheel since he joined. That he never found the way to gain the desired importance here may have made him bitter and sad. But that's life! ;)
