Investment bank Evercore to pay new bankers to delay hiring start date https://t.co/ryKO27k2ow $25k if you wait until July 2021 to start. A solid budget for a year off backpacking.

Reposting my Tiananmen anniversary piece last year, about the depressed economic prospects of young mainlanders, as revealed in "sang" culture. Nationalist rage and xenophobia are rarely symptoms of personal happiness or life satisfaction in any country. https://t.co/yY6MwK04wr

My new column: "An insecure Trump tries to use the US military to prove his manhood." And, yes, I do take on @SenTomCotton as well as Trump. Read and share your thoughts: https://t.co/gkXb2JOZAf

I have no sympathy for these privileged journalists. How many op-eds has NYT published calling for US military to rain death & destruction down on foreigners? Countless. Which is fine-not the destruction, but the columns. Our leaders are having this conversation, like it or not. https://t.co/jo85DnHwgU

The Chinese says, roughly: Family first then country. Maintain one country two systems, no evil national security law.

Quoted @asianartlibrary

"The emphasis on wet markets as “disgusting,” “medieval,” and a threat to our epidemiological futures draws upon long-standing racist stereotypes about Chinese hygiene, diseases, animal welfare, and food practices." https://t.co/hUccegI3RW

It’s always striking how appalled (some) people in the west are about Chinese ‘wet markets’, while being apparently complacent about factory farms and CAFOs - both incubators of potentially devastating plagues and antibiotic resistance. https://t.co/QPY2siVJrW

Smart piece by Robyn Mak. Taiwan has a talent shortage in fact. What it doesn't have is a good legal mechanism for absorbing refugees. https://t.co/lf5Nw1Y9mV

@TheOnion At this pace might be a photo finish.

In 2010 @TheOnion predicted that China would overtake the United States as "World's Biggest Asshole" by 2020. https://t.co/TixKmC9gBt https://t.co/gd22iSKpdN

If you doubted the End Times have come, I just went into a McDonald's that has run out of Big Macs.
