I'm sitting in my hotel room here in Shanghai (it's about 11:15pm), knocking back a Tsingtao Beer, and preparing for a well deserved rest after about twenty hours of travel (including fifteen in the air) to get here. Flying bidness class beats the hell out of huddling with the masses in coach, but fifteen hours on airplanes is not pleasant, no matter how comfortable the seats are or how many drinks you imbibe.
Hopefully, I'll get a chance to throw up a couple of posts this week. Right now all I'm thinking about is crashing and crashing hard. I am happy to report that Fraters Libertas is available for reading by our Chinese brethren without any government censorship or interference. I had heard that other bastions of freedom, such as the Fox News web site, were blocked by the Chinese authorities. Apparently we slipped under their radar.
Which means the whole totalitarian state gig cannot survive long here. When the oppressed peoples yearning to breathe free read the inspirational words of Atomizer detailing his heroic struggles to avoid birds and slug gin, you won't be able to hold them back much longer.
