Defense Minister Resigns Via Text Message

We've heard of Dear John text messages—hell, I've done a couple myself—but this is a new low. The Defense Minister of Timor-Leste, Jose Ramon-Horta, has resigned from his position via a simple text message.

"I do not wish to be associated with the present government or with any government involving Mr. Alkatiri."

Easy enough, I guess.
