The Cleveland of Asia

Here's an interesting article by P.J. O'Rourke in World Affairs. It's a little long, but he's in fine form in this one.

The Cleveland of Asia: A Journey Through China's Rust Belt

P. J. O'Rourke

[...] I went to China for a month in 2006 and ended up taking a tour of the world of things and stuff. I didn't mean to. I was just sightseeing. I'd only been to the mainland once and then only to Shanghai. I wanted to visit the Three Gorges before the new dam turned the Yangtze into a cesspool. I wanted a look at the Terracotta Warriors. And that sort of thing.
