I’m having issues images to upload to WordPress (wouldn’t you know it), and the websites I can upload images to seem to all be blocked by the fucking Chinese firewall … so I’m gonna need a rain check on this week’s Pic o’ the Week. Blerg, the internet seems to run faster in the morning, so I’ll try again when I wake up.
This has got to be my greatest frustration in this country. Not the staring, though that’s probably in second place; it’s the goddamn censoring of the internet. It just reeks of a small mind. So small that it must make other minds small as well. The most heart-breaking thing about it is talking to my students, who know (everyone knows) there’s information—good and relevant-to-their-lives information—that they cannot access. And there’s not a damned thing they can do about it.
At least I can return to my homeland.
