Masage Parlor Bomb

A bomb went off last night in the parking of the Poseidon massage parlor, injuring one person.  For those not in the know, a massage parlor in Thailand is not the place you go when you really want to get a massage.  Its a place that gentlemen (well men anyway :D ) visit for a special kind of good time.  If you are looking for a "real" massage, you would want to visit either a spa or a traditional Thai massage shop.

The massage parlor is owned by the father of Commerce Minister Pornthiva Nakasai.  The inclusion of "porn" in the son's name ("porn" is not an uncommon name in Thailand) or the obvious double entendre of "blowing" aside, I just have to comment on this one.  Can you imagine if the father of U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke's owned a business promoting prostitution?  Is there any chance he would be nominated, much less confirmed?
