By visiting Myanmar for a meditation retreat, and tweeting about how wonderful the experience was, Jack Dorsey is lending financial support to a genocidal country.

30-year-old Dutch tourist Klaas Haijtema says he thought the loudspeaker was a bunch of kids playing loud music and disturbing his sleep, so he unplugged it. He was sentenced to three months’ hard labor and fined $80. His lawyer says the Buddhist monks were the ones breaking the law by using loudspeakers after 9 pm.
