To prevent this, that I read in the Week magazine:
Good Week For Justice, after police in Hanover, Germany, refused to press charges against a man who was struggling with a balky computer late at night and hurled it out the window, causing a loud crash that woke some of his neighbors. “Who hasn’t felt like doing that?” said a police spokesman.
Apparently the topic has the tendency to get people all fired up. I’ve noticed lately that a lot of online BusinessWeek articles do.
Christine sent me this article that observes the Starbucks in Forbidden city is now closed to the many visitors of the Palace Museum.
Not really sure how I feel about that, or if I even have the right to have an opinion since I’m not a citizen of the Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó (PRC). Considering there are a plethora of other consumer establishments in the palace, I don’t see why having one Western icon is so horrible. Even if it is a chain.
Wow, apparently my opinion of Starbucks has really changed dramatically in the last couple years. Their CSR shamanism seems to be playing tricks on my psyche.
There’s no need to be rude and call me quite the cheese.
Also, I dont know what the Hanzi says, but may Lord have mercy on your soul when I find out, suckers!
Not sure if I’m still going to try to make a trip this week. I am going to be pretty busy, and I don’t want to pay so much to go on a pleasure trip alone without my family or Vinita.
And yes, I promise, my Hebei trip will be blogged about tonight after I hit up the ol’ gimnasio.
