Nutty American swims to Suu Kyi, upsets junta

One truly weird story.

Apparently a disturbed middle-aged American man left his home in Missouri, flew to Thailand, crossed into Myanmar (Burma), and swam across a lake to the house where dissident leader Aung San Suu Kyi is confined. And now both he and Suu Kyi are facing charges, and an international incident is brewing.

Wasn’t there also something earlier this year about a disturbed middle-aged American swimming nekid across a Japanese lake, and making the swat team come out to get him?

I remember a big naked guy frolicking in a fountain until the cops took him down.

I remember that story. He was British, IIRC.
