China Parents Apologize After Netizens Track Down Teenager who Defaced Egyptian Temple

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2013/05/27/ding_jinhao_chinese_parents_apologize_for_teen_s_egypt_graffiti.html

"The father called on China’s netizens to leave his son alone: "The kid has a good academic record, but is a little introverted. This is too much pressure for him to take."



One advantage of losing our hegemony is that other countries will feature more prominently as "Ugly non-Americans." The apology by the father is clueless as to how serious what this boy did.

2. This is just sad. I can't believe anyone would do this.

I would be in such awe of these sites I couldn't even imagine doing something like this young man did!

3. Let's go draw Hitler moustaches on those terra cotta figures in China, and

maybe a few posters and statues of Mao, and see how THEY like it.
