China is home to the largest trading/shipping port in the world.
New York did the dumbest thing in the world for constructing a multi-billion memorial structure at ground zero. Why didn’t they build the future? All that money on the past when China is rocketing on and “New York has stopped building.” The history books will note this as one of America’s biggest mistakes. They had a chance to show the world that they were back in business; instead we get this huge white elephant. What a waste of money and self-importance. It is probably the dumbest mistake yet.

Ginger Liu will revisit Shanghai and its surrounding areas in May 2009 for a story development, photojournalist, and documentary project. She will join her aunt, Doctor Marjory Bong-Ray Liu –one of the world’s most eminent musicologists, for the 130th anniversary of St. John’s University in Shanghai. Both Dr. Liu and my father graduated from this top University during the invasion of the Japanese army and what became known as the “Rape of Nanking.”
