Aung San Suu Kyi freed (by Suzie)

Myanmar’s pro-democracy leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, was freed from house arrest on Saturday, setting her on the path to a possible new confrontation with the generals who had kept her out of the public eye for 15 of the past 21 years.
That's from an article in the NYT. Here's more background on the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. The Washington Post had a shorter article. Unlike the NYT, however, it didn't describe what she was wearing.

I'm thrilled that the Burmese dictators went through with this. I just hope she can remain free. Then again, as she has written:
The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.
