Seventeen years in a Lao Gai
Yu Dongyue was finally freed after spending 17 years in prison for throwing paint at the portrait of Mao Zedong during the 1989 pro-democracy protests at Tiananmen Square.
In prison Mr Yu was tortured and has suffered mental problems. "He didn't seem to recognise me. When I called him `brother', he did not respond," said Yu Xiyue, Yu Dongyue’s brother.

"I talked to him, but his responses were incomprehensible. I didn't understand what he said. [. . .] He was just smiling at everyone."
The Dui Hua Foundation estimates that there are 70 dissidents like Yu Dongyue, still languishing in China's "prison work" camps because they participated in the Tiananmen Square protests. Other organisations put the estimated number of prisoners in the thousands. Why such a discrepancy in numbers?

Muslims Freep Oprah
Oprah's holding a poll where viewers are invited to vote for heroes, and send in true stories about them. Muslims have decided to abuse the contest to promote their prophet, Muhammad. While inanely funny, the most interesting thing about this, to me, is how popular Oprah is in Arab countries. Oprah is HUGE in the Arab world. If I was Oprah, I'd let Muhammad win this one-not the legitimate win, that should go to a real hero. But. I would at least throw the Muslims agitating for Muhammad a bone, and mention the overwhelming number of submissions of Muhammad for hero. It's one of those "win the battle, lose the war" things-they may get some amount of delight from Oprah acknowledging their fervent fandom of Muhammad, but what we win is much bigger: they're watching Oprah, for chrissakes! Now that's globalization. They're glued to their tv sets, watching a successful black American woman's show, which is mostly about female empowerment. Some of them may be daydreaming about their own societies reaching this stage of enlightenment; others may feel like they're watching a dog get up and walk on its hind legs. It doesn't matter. Throw them a frickin' bone here. We can afford to be generous. I'm not asking Oprah to praise Muhammad. I'm just asking her to give her and his mutual fans a slight nod.

When people are interceding with Oprah on behalf of Muhammad, you know something interesting is happening.

But please, nobody tell Thomas Friedman about this.

Gender segregation increasing in Iran
Internet cafes in Iran are now required to create separate spaces for men and women. If they don't have enough space, they'll be required to have a few hours a day for women, and the rest of the time Internet access will be available to men only.
"We were also asked to deny access to women not abiding by Islamic rules in the way they dress but the problem is that the law doesn't specify which rules it refers to," the manager of an internet cafe in Tehran told Adnkronos International (AKI).

"It's our fault because we don't know how to protest anymore and react with indifference at the impositions of authorities," said Arash, a student at the university of Tehran.
And you know who he blames for this, right?
Arash blamed the situation on the West, saying it has "embraced the nuclear problem, forgetting that the only real issue threatening Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is that of human rights given that on the nuclear programme he has the full support of the population."

Airport Security
Peggy Noonan describes her experiences with airport security: If Cattle Flew. I cannot say that my experience with flying after 9/11 has been as bitter as Peggy's. Security and Customs officials have been unfailingly polite and smiling and the one time I got pulled over for a special security check (along with my luggage), the security officials were pleasant, patient, and they tried to quell the tension with small chat and a joke. At the end, they politely wished me a safe journey.

Ms Noonan felt very sorry for a mom traveling with a small child, the mom had to take her sneakers off and the child had to pass through the magnetometer twice and probably got scared. In her article she ascribed feelings to the child, such as "anxious" and "scared", and the mother was "tense" and "flustered".

Of course traveling with a small child is always difficult, and some experiences are probably scary for children, but I think that in the years since 9/11, most parents have done a good job of explaining security checks to children and preparing them for airport lines and their toys being checked. Children that I've observed while in line, promptly put their backpacks and anything they were holding in the gray basket and passed through and waited to get them on the other side. It didn't seem like they were experiencing a traumatic event. I've also noticed that kids and people who are wearing sneakers, start untying them and taking them off while they're waiting in line.

Those were my observations as a passenger. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for TSA employees to deal with long lines of disgruntled passengers and if I was working for TSA I don't think I would be happy to see passengers like Ms Noonan making fun of my accent or giving me advice about how to do my job.

As for the man who had to give up his $800 gold lighter to a stranger because he wasn't allowed to take it on the plane with him, perhaps he should learn to travel with a Bic.

UK architects to boycott Israeli construction industry
Some of the UK's top architects have met in a secret session to agree to boycott Israel. My reaction at this is mixed.

On the one hand, I'm snickering at their sense of self-importance and pomposity. The story couldn't have been funnier unless it was "Waiters secretly agree to forgo Jewish tips". Architects are merely hands-for-hire. They're not drivers of economic growth in any way, shape or form. Their influence is only æsthetic, and they never have the financial power to initiate projects, only to join them. Wealthy individuals and corporations commission buildings. Architects are about as potent as plumbers, when it comes to directing the flow of economic activity in their field of endeavor.

Can anyone name a single prominent feature of the Israeli landscape that a British architect can put his name to? No, the Allenby bridge doesn't count.

On the other hand, I'm profoundly dismayed. Have Britain's upper classes sunk so low once again? A bunch of pompous old frauds meeting in secret to trumpet their own moral superiority to those awful Jews? What a nauseating and childish antisemitic spectacle. I wonder when Britannia's architects will rouse themselves to boycott British commissions, since Britain is so cruelly separating Northern Ireland from the rest of Ireland. End the British occupation!

Flip Coup Flap
The Philippines is busy crushing a military coup attempt against President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on the 20th anniversary of the people power revolution against dictator Marcos and his shoe-crazy wife. Sadly, getting rid of Marcos hasn't done much of anything for the country in the last 20 years. GDP per capita has remained stagnant:

Arroyo is accused of illegitimately taking power by voter fraud. Philippine politics are notoriously unstable, unfortunately for them, and for us as well. We're in the middle of renegotiating our security aid agreements with the Philippines, which is often a useful ally in the war on terror. We hold 20 war games with them every year, and 1,000 brave Marines have been helping to rescue survivors of the mudslide that buried an entire village alive.

Get it together, Philippines! Hint: exporting millions of your people to do manual labor overseas for menial wages will not improve your country. Keep them at home, and educate them.

In most Arab countries, even lower-middle-class families have live-in maids. These are either Filipina or Sri Lankan young ladies. They earn the equivalent of $50 a month (the Sri Lankan girls less, because they're black), most of which they send back home to their families. It's really sad that this is better than they can do back home.
