During a recent trip to San Francisco, I was asked to comment on China's threat to global environment by a local student regarding the fact that China is now the top country in greenhouse gap emission.
While the party elite are launching their poverty alleviation program to curb China's worsening income disparity situation and to build a harmonious society, in about every two minutes there will have one person choose to end up his misery by committing suicide.
Among these 290,000 odd suicidal victims, 84% of them are peasants and 35% are illiterate. Pesticide is the medium they use most (58%) to end up their lives.

"Strengthening governance" have been the buzz words of Donald Tsang ever since he became the Chief Executive of HKSAR Government. The problem is, however, which part of the governance does our Government want to strengthen?
From the debate of "large market, small government" to the recent launch of policy address, evidence shows that our Government is leading the path of nanny politics.
On chinese "ghost month" (lunar calendar of July), residents of the Lo-Sheng sanatorium (Happy Life Leprosy Sanitarium), a leprosarium built by the Japanese colonial government at 1930s, were burning paper money to the ghost, wishing the sanatorium could be preserved from the construction of metro station.
In the past, patients in the sanatorium were treated like life-time prisoners, and they could not leave the place even after their death. Thousands of the dead peaple were cremated and collected in the pagoda.
