Steven made me laugh out loud:
OK, reality time. Dear China: there will be no apology and no end to monitoring flights in international airspace. But if our people aren't released soon, there might be a trade embargo. You need export-driven jobs a lot more than we need umbrellas and dishes. Think it over. Your friend, Steve
And in the mean time, I urge everyone to boycott Chinese products for as long as their leaders continue to hallucinate that a prop-plane with 24 people on board deliberately tried to ram a jet fighter.
