He's doing what, now?

So what has Vietnamese top dog Nguyễn Minh Triết been up to?

Planting trees. Oh, yeah, that makes sense.

Quoth the president:

Uncle Ho 47 years ago called people all walks of life to take part in a tree-planting festival, which has become a cultural tradition every spring for the Vietnamese people.

Huh. Well, anyway, the good news is that every minute spent playing Johnny Appleseed is one less minute spent purging political enemies, ruining the economy or abusing human rights, so good show President Nguyễn!

Thanks to Tracy for the article, incidentally.
