China is busily shutting the sites of those who report on a NYT story detailing the billions of dollars of wealth accumulated by family members of PM Wen Jiabao. "His enemies are intentionally trying to smear him," says a colleague of the PM. "There's no family (in senior leadership) that doesn't have these problems." Isn't that the issue?

    It's completely different right now here in the U.S. I sent my teen kid to an exclusive resort in Mexico with 15 of her friends, and an army of support/security staff, for Spring Break this year. Just like the President. Who didn't?

    This reminds me of the days when Gorbachev used to brag that "I only have a salary of $27,000-a-year," thus proving he was a man of the people, that socialism was the better system than capitalism and earning himself the endless love of American lefties. Somehow or other, on his people's salary, he's still jetting around the world and is welcome in all leftist salons.
