Jung Chang… Attack!

By Eric Abrahamsen, published

The slow pre-Olympics ramp-up continues, now with a lengthy Guardian article on Jung Chang, in which she has harsh words for Mao and China in general. I'll admit that, when I see things like this, I get nervous. It's not that what she's saying is incorrect, but I worry that this is only a warning rumble before the avalanche…

"Slow" being the key word here - the article says "12 months to go until the Olympics," so the lead-time's been almost three months.

Hey, outrage stays fresh year-round!

That is weird, though. I wonder whether they sat on the article, or had the calendar upside-down.
