I have spent a lot less time reading the news lately, and somehow missed (not surprising, given a dearth of coverage) that Aung San Suu Kyi has been injured and taken into some kind of government custody in Burma. The Washington Post has an excellent editorial today. Contact the State Department to find out what they are doing about this. (Nothing, will be my guess, unless enough people bug them.) Secretary Powell's phone number is 202-647-5291.

UPDATE: The State Department has posted press release on the subject, and Spokesman Richard Boucher responded to a question about it today. On the whole, none of this is forceful enough, IMHO, but it's more than nothing.
