Elude The Cat

China's answer to a crime includes amateur sleuths - IHT

Li Qiaoming and a half-dozen fellow inmates played "elude the cat," a Chinese hide-and-seek that might be better described as Marco Polo without the pool.

Unfortunately supposedly he fell down, suffered a head injury, and died.

Fascinating story on so many levels:
  1. Power of the Internet in China.
  2. How the government tries to manipulate the Internet.
  3. Internet commentator is a euphemism for those who seek to shape public debate with pro-government postings.
