On the way home from Shanghai to Taiwan, the flight was very quiet and I was back to the mode of tranquility and orderliness. It was like a tale of two cities. I felt the familiar environment of normalcy and security on the plane that I am used to.

I venture to say that a sizeable portion of people in China cannot be considered virtuous. Some are loud-mouthed simpletons; some are selfish and self-centered to the core. Some are patently dishonest and lying like a carpet. Red Guard-like behaviors are simply unfit for any modern society.

Chairman Mao must have been out of his mind or out to deliberately mislead his people in that poem. To claim that mainland China is brimming with 600 million virtuous people, mama mia. Give me a break. When pigs fly.
