FoodPolitics.com too political for China? Really?
My not quite son-in-law is stage managing a play in China, and writes:
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!
I guess he’s referring to my posts on the deliberate adulteration of pet food and infant formula with melamine. Is this site really blocked? If so, is it really a threat to the Chinese state?
Seems far-fetched, no? Anyone know anything about this?
