Not sure because I ought to be happy that the Phillies are tied for first with 12 games to play, but I'm really worried that the countries' financial institutions are in a free-falling mess, those supposed to know are talking 1929 crash, people are losing their jobs and I don't understand how it happened- it helps not a bit to say it's related to housing prices and sub-prime mortgages.
But I promised to talk about China. Go back 300 years or more - a new dynasty takes over - the Manchu - they have their way for all those years - a feudal dynasty - lots of ugliness in the middle kingdom. In 1839 - the British brought warships to force the Chinese to buy opium produced in British India - the Chinese resisted enough for Historians to call the struggle a war - the Opium War. All I can say is I'm glad the British got Hong Kong in the deal, because if they didn't it's not likely I would have found Liddy.
