Today’s China Readings August 5, 2012

"Sinocism is the Presidential Daily Brief for China hands"- Evan Osnos, New Yorker Correspondent and National Book Award Winner

Welcome to all the new subscribers who came through via the flattering PandoDaily profile. Normally I include some daily commentary with the links but I am wrapping up a US vacation with my kids and so things are going to be a bit light for the next few days. After we return to Beijing later in the week I should be able to get things back on track.

As always there were trolls who weighed in on the PandoDaily article, though so far there have been fewer than expected. My favorite comment has me “less an active ring-leader like Goldkorn and more like a leather-clad demigod exacting tribute from his cronies.” Sounds nice, though I have no leather in my wardrobe other than belts and shoes and to date the tribute has not been forthcoming. It is probably safe the assume the commenter has melted his brain on Game of Thrones and/or World of Warcraft.

Thanks for reading, here are today’s links:
