The knowledge that two egg cartons' worth of Hollywood big shots signed a letter doesn't impress me as much as it might.
A detail in the letter jumped out at me, though. It says that "according to the United Nations expert on human rights in Burma, the ruling military regime has burned down or otherwise destroyed over 3,000 villages in eastern Burma, forcing over 1 million and a half people to flee their homes."
That doesn't sound good.
