The Irresistible Force

From Strategy Page, a post about recent happenings in China. Seems that the downfall of Bo Xilai has the Chinese Internet awash with rumors and criticism, which is making the government there uncomfortable.

There is also a nice description of how people are able to get around the censorship that is being imposed.
