China Offers Special Postage Stamp

It's not being talked about in U.S. newspapers -- yet -- maybe they'll eventually print it. I heard on the BBC news on the radio last night: The Chinese government is printing a postage stamp commemorating the people who died in the earthquake. It will be offered for sale today. Proceeds will be donated to the people in Sichuan Province.

Why couldn't Bush et al come up with this after Hurricane Katrina? Why? Why? Why? Does a Communist government care more about their people than a democratic one? Oops, forgot the quotes ... I meant "democratic" one. (Remember, I believe they stole the election.)

And, no, Ms. Manitoba is not forgetting Tibet. The U.S. has many Tibets -- called reservations.

And, yes, I admit that if an earthquake had happened in Tibet there would have been a much different response ... and no stamp.
