China seems to be slipping back to its more authoritarian past.  Story here.  I think that China is headed for social upheaval in the next 10 years.

I previously noted a report on a missing Chinese movie star here.  Now, another high profile Chinese national has gone missing.  Could some sort of crackdown be going on behind the scene?

Sounds like a perfectly righteous shooting.  Good for this mom.

This is interesting.  No one seems to know where she is.  If the government have her, thus far they aren’t saying.

Military deployed to fight crime in Montego Bay

The Jamaican Defense Forces (the equivalent of the Jamaican Army) have been deployed to the resort town of Montego Bay and the surrounding St. James parish.  This is an effort to reduce crime, especially murders, that have spiked in the parish over the last year.  While crime has always been a problem in the southern part of the island, the tourist area in the northern half has typically been very safe.

This is a sad development sure to hurt the tourist trade that the island depends on.  Story here.

There is tons of money to be saved by cutting out the waste in Defense Department.
