I enjoy your column on That's Beijing. Keep up the good work.

I think the subject of Genghis khan has always been a sensitive subject in China. He is portrayed as a ruthless ruler who invaded China in the west. But from Chinese history books he is treated a lot nicer. And the invasion of China is also considered the beginning of a new dynasty. I guess the government don't want to piss off the Mongol minorities. If we can not even have images of pigs to celebrate "year of the pig" because of the Muslims, we should all praise the all mighty Genghis Khan.

You've genuinely made the rest of the day and most of the next (it's eleven p.m.) of two college students in Missouri. Well done.
