Hey Tomass,

Can you call your Commie pals over China and tell them to release our blogger brother-in-arms?

Seems they don't like freedom of expression over there or freedom of the press.

Prominent Chinese blogger charged as crackdown deepens.

BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese police have arrested prominent writer Ran Yunfei for challenging the ruling Communist Party, people close to the blogger said on Monday, the latest in a string of arrests in a deepening crackdown on dissent.

"Basically, it's the crime of expressing your opinions," said Wang, formerly a legal scholar.

More than 100 activists, many of them active on Twitter and blogging sites, have been detained, subjected to monitoring and intimidation by the security forces or have gone missing since late February, particularly after the online calls for "Jasmine" gatherings, according to Amnesty International.

"The government on the one hand prevents freedom of the press and disallows the free flow of information, and on the other hand ... conceals the truth," Ran wrote on his Twitter account on Feb 14.

Sounds like the kind of shit that happens in another country about 90 miles south of Key West Tomassito...
