As much as I criticize the way things are in the U.S., I am so very happy to have the freedom to make those criticisms. China's jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo is in jail for criticizing the Chinese government, just won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work, and now his wife is under house arrest. I have to say I find it highly amusing (with a dark edge) that the Chinese government describes the award to Liu as "blasphemy". I thought a Communist government didn't have any deity to blaspheme. If they consider themselves sacred they are badly deluded.
