An Excellent Example of Political Harmony in China

From Time’s China Blog:

“Perhaps the most profound insight into harmony I’ve heard recently came a few weeks ago during a party in the Beijing courtyard where I live. My neighbor Feng, a postal worker with a lazy eye and unerring sense of humor, had consumed an inharmonious amount of baijiu, the official firebrew of China. Late into the evening he stood up and announced: “The Beijing government is always talking about building a harmonious society, but we already have a harmonious society right here in this courtyard!” The assembled guests roared their approval. A few minutes later Feng puked in the corner, and our celebration of harmony was over for the night.”
