Millionaires of the World, Unite!

You have nothing to lose but your servants?
BEIJING, April 28 -- From Mao to Yao, China has come a long way, and not everybody here is happy about it.

Amid a national controversy over what it means to be a worker in the China of 2005, the Communist Party government announced Thursday that Yao Ming, the 7'-6" Houston Rockets center from Shanghai, has been accorded the title of vanguard worker -- even though he is a millionaire living in Texas who makes his living playing basketball.
Hee hee. I'm waiting for Mao's corpse to come back to life and re-start the Cultural Revolution over this.
