In a welcome departure from what usually comes out of its Beijing Bureau, the NYTimes has delivered what's actually really bad news about China in a way that is neither hysterically paranoid nor needlessly absurdist

In fact, David E. Sanger has very skillfully devoted several grafs to pointing out how the U.S. is just as complicit in the very behaviors it accuses China of adopting! ¬†Although the iconoclast in me is thrilled, the China Hand in me is not because this is definitely still bad news all around for everyone and bad behavior in general. ¬†Think good thoughts about my visa application over the next few weeks, if that’s the sort of thing that you’re inclined to do!
