Speaking of Chinese totalitarianism...'s the first day of the government's new quick-clean-up-for-the-Olympics policy:

"Half of Beijing's drivers left their cars at home and took public transportation instead on Monday, the first workday under new restrictions meant to clear this city's notoriously polluted skies before next month's Olympics."

Read the whole thing.
Totalitarianism is when the government can tell you when you can and can't drive your car.
It's good to remind ourselves occasionally of just what totalitarianism is.
