I was going to link to this column by Eric Zorn from the Chicago Tribune (reg. req'd). He is, as Dean describes him, a lefty constrained by common sense.
Two for China Watch--
Dean Jens quotes John Derbyshire's latest column.
Memo to Hu Jintao: If the U.S. loses a city to some terrorist group, via a weapon that would not have been made if you had helped us shut down the Kim Jong-il regime, or via a weapon you sold, or helped someone develop — if that happens, pal, it will be around 100 years before any American ever again buys any object stamped MADE IN CHINA.Hmm....
Also, Dean Jens makes a funny China-related joke.
Posting over the next few days will be light as I head into my cave to write a paper I've been putting off for months now.
