Holiday in Cambodia

20 years ago today, Pol Pot was overthrown.  A lot of people don’t understand what Pol Pot did that was so bad.  Here’s a brief screenplay describing his regime:

Pol Pot:  Hey, I’m in charge!  Hooray!

2,000,000 Scholars and Laborers:  We don’t think you know how to run this place better than the last guy.

Pol Pot:  How rude!

2,000,000 Scholars and Laborers:  We’re dead.  Pol Pot has killed us and piled our skulls in mounds.
