Finally Giving Up
Yes, we have decided to give up blogging forever and open a chain of Tarot Reading Rooms, Crystal Ball factories and a sideline in Stock Market predictions. Once again, we are looking like Jeanne Dixon, Carnac the Magnificent and Nostradamus rolled into one. To wit:
- SHANGHAI A week of protests by residents of a town in China's southern industrial heartland exploded into violence last weekend with thousands of police officers brandishing automatic weapons and using electric batons to put down the protest and seal off the village, residents said Monday.

- A 13 year old girl may have died in another violent police crackdown on protesters in southern China: Up to 20,000 people from several villages in Guangdong province's Sanjiao township near Zhongshan city gathered on a highway just after dusk on Saturday to continue protests that had begun earlier in the week. "Between 30 to 50 people were injured as police were attacking anyone they saw," one villager named Tan, told AFP. "There is a lot of talk that a 13-year old middle school girl student was killed in the attack."China had 74,000 protests in 2004. (GatewayPundit)
