China Milk Update

Wow, 2 sentenced to death. Head of Dairy company, 66 years old, sentenced to life in prison. They are definitely being made an example of and it's a sensitive issue for the Chinese Government. Part of the implicit bargain of the Mandate of Heaven is the government will take care of the people, but in this case obviously the government did not by allowing this situation to exist. This explains why this possible public scandal that could revoke the perceived mandate of heaven is so touchy, as is corruption and economic issues.
