Greg Donohue wrote probably the nicest words about Henan you’ll find anywhere. Murong Xuecun asks about freedom of speech. Police released footage of the Jingwen death that sparked a big Beijing protest, but questions still remain.
Environmental protests happened in Kunming again. Something weird is coming out of this Nanjing street. Here’s another “protest” of sorts — of bad Maserati dealership service. Shed a tear for Hong Kong’s rubber duck.

Alec, on the airport rumble:
Impressively written. Good work, Sheehan.
