Revolution Day Festivities

It's interesting to see the line the government is walking down for Revolution Day. Clearly the number one goal is to avoid any kind of trouble. Bakiev isn't at all interested in that.

But he also doesn't want everyone staying home that day. That wouldn't look good either. So they're planning all kinds of events for March 24th, like intercollegiate sports competitions, to get people out but out in a controlled way.

It'll be interesting to see what happens. Personally, I don't think there's anything to worry about. But still, we'll probably spend a nice quiet day at home. That sounds the most pleasant anyway. And I think a reasonable number of people in Bishkek will stay home too.
