Puzzling

Zhang_Ziyi.jpg

Zhang Ziyi, top ten successful Chinese actress of 2007 and sort of attractive, confesses she is "puzzled" by human rights protests* in the run up to the Beijing Olympiad (hat tip to Bill).

"I don't see why people are so negative. The games are about friendship," Zhang was quoted as saying in the current issue of Vogue. "I'm Chinese and I'm proud of my country."

I cannot imagine I am alone in finding this combination of sentiment threatening.

* Real human rights, not the Canadian kind.
