Elephant stomps Chinese keeper, will live to tell about it
This story is flippant enough, but why would the elephant be "possibly suffering from sunstroke?" When I visited the Beijing zoo last March, I saw some animals in conditions of great neglect, elephants included. Elephants are accustomed to hot weather, but they need shelter. What were the occupational safety measures that would have protected the worker? Put those omissions together and you get some idea about journalism with Chinese characteristics.

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.
