Get Out and Vote!

Jaime Florcruz, dean of foreign correspondents in China, now with CNN, formerly TIME Beijing bureau chief (the picture of him was taken in our office), is looking to be one of the 8 foreign torch bearers in the upcoming Olympic torch relay. He and his daughter are both seeking to carry the torch in a selection process that involves online voting. I’d encourage everyone to click (here for Jimi and here for his daughter Michelle) and vote. If anyone deserves to have the honor of carrying the torch it is the excellent Jimi, who knows more about China and the Chinese than all the rest of us rolled together. So, as they used to say in Tamany Hall when men were men and elections were rigged, vote early and vote often!
