Out to lunch

Today I received writing assignments from three separate companies, so I can’t imagine finding any time to post. Tomorrow will be kind of hectic as well, but hopefully I’ll be able to swing back into action. Meanwhile, go read about how, as one of my fellow bloggers insists, there’s no censorship to speak of in China.

The Discussion: 4 Comments

Well, when you get back, you can talk about this NY Times article which alleges that Jiang Zemin “retains ultimate power” and that it was Jiang Zemin’s decision to jail Jiang Yanyong.

Wayne, if you read my earlier post on this topic (http://pekingduck.org/archives/001455.php) you’ll see I note Jiang Zemin’s probable role in this. I wrote, “Considering the doctor’s outspokenness on the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the role of the Central Military Commission, the smart money is on Jiang Zemin, though Hu evidently gave his buy-in. Maybe it’s yet another manifestation of the famous in-fighting between them.” Did you see it?

I read the article when it came out and haven’t had time to write about it. It’s a great piece, and notes how things have gotten worse under Hu, possibly because of Hu needing to accommodate Jiang.

You won’t believe this. There’s no water in Lake Michigan.

Actually you’re thinking of Lake Erie after Bush gets through gutting enviro-terrorist laws like Clean Water and puts in “hazy crazy skies” (translated from NewSpeak “clear skies”) laws.

And didn’t that write up from the Beijing journalist state that 99% of all censorship in China is self-censorship. You only need to shut down a few or arrest a few to get the rest of the sheep running in the right direction on their own.
