This one goes out to the Dale, who is responsible for sending my blog readership numbers in China through the roof. Dale's on another one of his extended business trips there. I believe that he's in the city of Guangzhou, the third largest city in the country. They speak Cantonese there, which always makes me think of Wayne's World [there's a scene where Wayne is learning Cantonese by tape and says the phrase, "Eatz, Ah, Bean, Du-ah!" Wonder if that was really Cantonese . . .]. As a result of the Dale's readership abroad, you will notice that I have refrained from any complaints about the forthcoming Beijing Olympics, as I would like for the Dale to return to Cincinnati and not be imprisoned there.

Hang in there, man.
