The Sign is back and it needs special security now!
The "Ratchaprasong Interesection" sign disappeared for one day -- and was back today. The sign, covered with dirt and even graffiti, was removed on Monday for a thorough cleaning. When it came back yesterday, it looked so clean that the speculation was that it was a "new" sign.
As cartoonist Arun here suggests, a squadron of security officials may now be necessary to just guard the sign from being vandalised or taken away. It has simply become too politicized!
