As my man Teddy Roosevelt once said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." I might add, "Learn how to swing your stick, as well."

Shanghai FOR THE WIN

Was there the other weekend with 3 friends visiting from Denmark. Scary stuff.. I must admit, Beijing is not as warm as usually and I looked forward to going back to Shanghai. People are much friendlier here, and service is much better!

The Global Times article cites an alarming number of other stabbings that have happened in the Dashilar area, including attacks on two other foreign tourists in the last three years, and another guy who stabbed 16 people (two of whom died) on the street. It's terrifying that this kind of thing happens so frequently just next to Tian'anmen Square, which is surely one of the places in the world with the most strict, vigilant public security.
