When I was a boy...



...you couldn't use language like that in a "family newpaper".

But seriously... it's beginning to look like faulty school building construction is to blame for deaths of many children in the chinese eathquake and the parents, understandably, are starting to to ask questions.



This is a Communist Party official confronting outraged parents holding pictures of their lost children. I can't pretend to know all the cultural nuances in a scene like this, but when was the last time you saw any American official show even this much humility in the face of obvious under-performance?
