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

December 16 – December 29

Check out Xi Jinping having lunch at a local Beijing restaurant — all these people did. Cats may have been first domesticated in China.

Bobby Brown scored 74 points in a CBA game that was marred by four ejections. Global Times responded to Thomas Friedman. Now we know there are forced cremations. Guangzhou Evergrande finished fourth at the FIFA Club World Cup.

Max Baucus’s favorite Beijing restaurant is Blue Frog. This dish is so indelicately named. Wrong but genius.
