The Situation Is Excellent: The Week That Was At Beijing Cream

May 28 – June 3

RFH broke the latest development in the story of the “British rapist,” reporting that he has been deported back to the UK. Speaking of foreigners behaving badly, this fight in Sanlitun is one of the more brutal ones you’ll see. This movie poster for “Love in the Buff” got linked to on Kotaku, as did this video showing five people on the same motorcycle getting hit by a car, while Jalopnik linked to our post on an exploding BYD electric car.

Have you read Yoichi Shimatsu words yet, you drug-dealing foreigners? Go do it again. Censorship continues to annoy us, but at least Google is pushing back. And in case you missed it, here’s TAR Nation’s answers to my questions on Xinhua’s “Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011.”

For your consideration: Jonathan Kos-Read. (Did you know we were thrice-blessed with TAR’s presence this week? Here’s his Confucius Institute piece.)

Lola stopped by to write about her favorite subject: boobs. These color photos of China circa 1944-45 were popular on the Twittersphere. Our stray-dog-in-Tibet post was linked to on Huffington Post. Oh, and Mark and Priscilla Zuckerberg appeared on CCTV. Voting is still open for the Shaq vs. McGrady Chinese beer commercial. I personally prefer Shaq’s, though he’s trailing 11-5 in the poll.

It was really nice in Beijing on Wednesday. Here’s to hoping for more of the same. Thank you for reading.
