The New China is on the Warpath Against Corruption
"He was found to have used most of his money to try to bribe investigators into dropping an investigation..." qualifying him for a Crackpot dishonorable discharge award.
China is doling out the death penalty for corruption, smuggling and other crimes against its credibility and fiscal stability these days. This article is from China Daily, the English edition of which is freely distributed to the foreign teachers at the China Foreign Affairs University, where my husband and I are teaching this year. The sincerity of how China is emerging as a 21st century power is outdone only by the speed at which this is being accomplished, something we witness daily. This crackpot hit the jackpot--the ultimate sentence.
China Daily 12/30/2003 (page1)Read this and also read what The LongBow Papers says about what corrupt American financeers might take notice of.
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
