Is Beijing watching?
I have a little widget on my blog that supposedly keeps track of where in the world people are accessing my blog from. Ever since I've installed this, there's a steady unblinking dot indicating "Beijing, China". Why would Beijing be reading my blog? I don't know, but just in case it's my favourite person there, Mr Wen Jia-Bao, I'm happy to remind him of my disgust at the Chinese government's campaign of abuse against the Dalai Lama. Most recently, his puppet media is going woof-woof at Lama-ji for his "monstrous crimes" and "perpetuating fraud". I find this kind of language so utterly shameless.
