of greater rumbling significance in events happening today in sichuan was the three year sentence metered out to brave soul who dared to question the building standards of collapsed schools as a result of the 5:12 big one.
however, a quick peruse of the local qq news failed to unearth any information remotely connected with his story, or sentence. this reader had to aquire such news from the nytimes.
his crime, possessing state secrets. can anybody here please provide a definition for what exactly is classified as a state secret in china? could knowing how many 烧烤摊's there are to be found in a certain popular nightspot district on a saturday night be one? or maybe guessing the percentage of local women who have black hair?
