"The lanky Ottawa native, a virtual unknown in Canada, is most renowned for his Chinese TV appearances as the quick-witted foreigner who does amusing skits and the first Westerner to perform the ancient Chinese art of xiangsheng, or comedic dialogue."

this is very odd indeed chinese news media's flash tribute for the WTC tragedy
rough translation for the song:
elderly american goes to work
was very frightened
someone drove a plane into the building
and it fell down
but he was very fit
so he ran down 937 stairs and got away
the news people asked him to say a few words
that was all he could say
he said someone crashed a plane into the building
they were terrorists
this is bad because it affects ordinary people

Bush soft on China, so pundits say Spouting a tough guy stance, the talk shows guests, all conservative commentators, suggested Bush whimped out and made America look weak. They preferred a much tougher stand even while the military were "on loan."

China puts '700,000 troops' on Sudan alert.
"The Chinese have been brought in by aircraft and ship ... We've all seen the Chinese being brought in and can only pray about what's going to happen next." I am quite suprised I haven't heard more about this in the western media.
