I had tried to avoid posting a picture of Wen Jiaobao, might give people a different impression.
But this is one I can not resist to not post.
A 3-years old saluting to premier "Grandpa" Wen...
Wen Jiaobao also went to a re-opened school and gave some pep-talk to the classes of children. "Grandpa" Wen has emerged as a national hero.
Normally I don't like idolization of political leaders too much. However this time he and Hu Jintao deserve all the love and support of the people,
which give them the mandate needed. If they play this out very well, then they might be able to speed up the governmental reforms.... To the PR-stunt
accusation critics: You can think whatever you want, at the end, without these two guys with absolute power on the spot coordinating the crisis, then
actions would be much slower, indecisve and ineffective in many cases, more victims as the result.
A comittee is already formed for investigating the collapsed school buildings. Will certainly follow this up closely, these corrupted officials,
Also very interesting radio news to hear is that a constructor has already build a "temporary homes complex" which is much stronger, a real new
temopary home. Every unit is 4 square meter, good enough for a family of 3. Medicial facilities and cantenes are also available. These are of course
much better than the tents. Even more touching is that MANY homeless tent-living refugees are passing the offer to "people in more need".
Shenzhen also offered to build 20,000 appartments for the refugees of Sichuan. The richest and most developed SEZ of China is thus actually inviting
those victims who don't want to stay in Sichuan to come to Shenzhen to start a new life.
A incredible hacker who hacked the website of the Chinese Red Cross, and changed the "account information", so people will transfer to donation to
his account. This guy in Shenzhen is CAUGHT!
