HK stuff getting real. A new Tiananmen Square going to happen soon? The British should've never given it to PRC, if they wanted to be weak-willed, they should've given back to ROC (THAT would've been hilarious... ;) )  But in the current climate of global media and connectivity with PRC crack-down as hard, or do they not care or the free world will not care or they, with their Big Tech partners, be able to censor everything anyway?

"Li Ka-shingâ€"a 91-year-old tycoon worth $27 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Indexâ€"was aimed at the Chinese government. It referenced a Tang dynasty poem that calls on an empress not to kill her own children."

Strange story- including how it is reported. Headline, link to FT, but behind a firewall, and then some disclaimer that they can't vouch for the article using "Reuters" only not Thomson-Reuters.

Too funny. Der Fuehrer got his knickers in a knot over the Winnie the Pooh meme - I am sure that caused even more angst.   Guess the FB ban in the PRC won't be lifted anytime soon.

Chinese Fire Drill?
Who is going to start the coronavirus thread? And when will the usual doomsday sayers on the interwebs, radio, etc circuit going to jump in? I've heard some mutterings but surprising not more dire predictions!

Well presumably it is typical over hyped doomsday doom. Still, supposedly the Chinese Army is sealing off a city with a population of NYC and L.A..  I don't know if that is unprecedented or not. 
Of course the plague city just happens to be where China's version of Fort Dietrick is.
