A happy coda to my last post. Newspaper reports today say that the Hong Kong home of late martial arts star Bruce Lee will no longer be sold. The property was originally one of several slated for auction by owner Yu Panglin, the billionaire hotel developer, who planned to give proceeds to victims of the Sichuan earthquake. Mr Yu now says that he will consider donating the house—for which bids as high as $13.5 million were received—to the community, with the intention that it be used as a Bruce Lee museum.
