Why Didn't Yao Ming Also Sleep?

The former Chinese NBA star Yao Ming was appointed by the Chinese communist party to be a member of the CPPCC (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference). Yao Ming is also a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University at present, and at same time conducting his wine business.

Having all those duties to attend to, Chinese bloggers commented on these photos:

"Why did 'Delegate Yao' not sleep?"

"Please have a look: the back of those chairs are so low, even if 'Delegate Yao' slid down in his seat he would still not be able to rest his back properly; but think about it everyone, Yao is a star, and a tall man, if one takes photos, doesn't matter from which angle, one cannot miss Yao. If Yao was caught sleep, what kind of news would we get? ...!  Well, Yao made the right decision, did not sleep, but Yao is dreaming with his eyes open, if you check the photos carefully..."

A series of billboards appeared in Times Square as part of a Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation campaign. The Foundation is a Washington, D.C.- based organization dedicated to educating the public about communism’s legacy worldwide.

The billboards note that today, 1 in 5 people on earth live under communism; that it remains illegal to mention the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre; and one billboard lists the deaths caused by communist regimes by country. China tops the list at 65 million.
