Ah, if only we could be China for a day, am I right Friedman?

Good point by Matthew.

If Zero had the power of the Red Chinese Pres, all the non-trolls on Althouse would be inhabiting Dachau-on-the-Cuyahoga.

So much for the fiction that he is "studying abroad and will be returning"...

Speaking of N.Y.U., let's enjoy this lovely bit of dialogue from Woody Allen's "Sleeper":

LUNA: I'M GREAT PHYSICALLY. I GOT A PHD IN ORAL SEX.

MILES: DID THEY MAKE YOU TAKE ANY SPANISH WITH THAT ?

LUNA: I MINORED IN FOREPLAY. IT'S A TWO-CREDIT COURSE AT N.Y.U.

I wonder if 'The Roy Orbison of the East' has been blocked.

"Fuck him" says the WH. "He's just a crusader against forced sterilization. It's not like he's crusading for Global Warming or something important."

Ain't that right all you progressives!

Ask Elian Gonzales how democrats stand up to a marxist dictator, or a foreign tyrant.

I'm going to China in the fall. It will be interesting to go on the Internet and see what I can't do.

Carnifex, there's no telling what a grown-up Elian Gonzales will think after growing up in Cuba. Maybe he'll hate Communism; maybe he'll love Big Brother.

The one thing certain is that he won't be free. Whether his mind is free or not, his body won't be. The Cuban government still operates the equivalent of the Berlin Wall. Try to leave, and you can be shot on sight.
