I looked at the pictures of Mayor Koch and you in your kitchen last week and it worked fine. Now I’m here in Shenzhen & Internet Explorer isn’t able to open your Blog. See! That’s what you get for all those nasty things you said about the Chinese baby formulas and pet foods!

Seems far-fetched, no? Anyone know anything about this?
