Thai P.M. ousted by courts

Thai Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej was finally forced out of office not by protests but by the Courts:

Samak, 73, a self-proclaimed foodie, hosted a popular television cooking show -- ''Tasting and Complaining'' -- for seven years before becoming prime minister. But he also made several appearances after taking office, breaking a constitutional prohibition on private employment while in office.

This isn't the end of Thailand's political problems b a long shot, and they still have an active insurgency in the South.
