Comment Shame on Newsweek (Score 2, Insightful) 553

Shame on Newsweek for presenting this issue as "one of history's more absurd acts of totalitarianism" rather than the Chinese government wanting to choose the next Dali Lama. They do come out and say that later in the article but presenting this as just some kind of wacky law is misleading. I guess the real shame is that most people don't get past the first few sentences of the article to understand what's really being discussed.

Retirement means that when someone says "Have a nice day", you actually have a shot at it.
