Well, I just saw this headline from the NYT:
Too Old and Frail to Re-educate? Not in China By ANDREW JACOBSAre we really celebrating the Olympics in a country where, like Russia before it, people can be sent to labor camps for protesting the state?
Two elderly women were sentenced to a year of labor after seeking to demonstrate in an official Olympic protest area.
And, are the Chinese really still calling it "re-education"?
I am utterly incredulous and can think of nothing funny to say to leave you with except this: I sometimes feel like the Wicked Witch of the West walking along and moaning under my breath "What a world, what a world...".
Okay that wasn't even a little funny. Chalk it up to a super early morning and way too much to think about, including, now, little old Chinese ladies being hauled off to labor camps.
