Did He Get a Mao Hat, Though?

In today's TD, Tucker Martin has this piece on his recent trip to China. Interesting observations on the changing culture and the possibility that the self-described Marxist government may soon find itself unable to keep pace with the expectations of the people.

And the piece clears up a small mystery: why were the press releases from Bob McDonnell's office were coming from someone else?

Vacation (cue to Go-Go's music).

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance.
