Those poor, suffering, Chinese, tv viewers.

They will miss the episode where Barney borrows Homer's car and leaves it in New York.

I heard that Mickey Mouse's EARS have the same effect that tin foil has and tooth fillings have, as they are a source of government eavesdroppings. Or is that MOUSE DROPPINGS? Well.....It's a SMALL world after all..........

An action that proves that, even with all its manifold faults, China is in the forefront of civilized nations.

China can ban all they like. I was a teacher in China and there was a sub culture of teens with all the videos of south park on DVD. The Chinese teachers had no knowledge of this. Students in China are smart and quite hip to their government and it's antics. Books like the Joy of Sex are still banned as is Jan Wong's China Blues.

There is a problem however with the internet. If a Chinese person has an internet address that is local to China, I cannot contact my friends. I have urged them to get hotmail or yahoo. I have been warned many times and my e-mails returned. What I do is pass my messages on to a colleague that is still there and ask him to please forward the message.

this is no doubt a one-sided and biased story. whoever wrote this doesn't understand a single thing about chinese politics and culture except for that the chinese are "communists" along with all the images that come with the word.

How strange, I can recall sitting in various Officers' Messes around Canada all through the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s and almost always having a copy of Time available to read.

Have you ever considered actually knowing something about what you write?

No. Anything can be discussed at any time. This is an open forum.

This is not a one-sided biased story. It is an objective comment based on experiences during living and working in China for five years.

I hope that your study of Chinese history does not blind you to China's present and future.

Hopefully your graduate education will lead to a better understanding of China and to a greater appreciation of the thoughts,ideas and writings of others.

All the best.
