James R. Lilley in the Wall Street Journal: "In recent days a series of large anti-Japanese street protests in major Chinese cities has dramatically increased tensions. The Chinese want to block any political rise of Japan by keeping it out of the U.N. Security Council. China also wants to checkmate Japanese attempts at power projection by attacking its new role over the sensitive issue of Taiwan. China also plays on lingering anti-Japanese feelings among Asian states to hit Japan when its economy is still weak."

I think the way the question is phrased is pretty funny -- no link to the background story about why students might need a jolt, just a simple "Should police be allowed to use stun guns against unruly students?"

McCants set to announce departure for NBA. Thanks, Rashad, for your contributions to this great team and the rejuvenation of UNC basketball. You are a favorite at our house.

Felton: hate to see you go, but expect that you will. What's another year of college ball going to do for you? Thanks, Raymond, for the excitement and leadership you brought to the Tar Heels.

May: your draftability is high, you can learn the things you need to learn in the pros...couldn't blame you a bit for checking out now. Thanks, Sean, for all those double doubles, and for being a great spokesman for the team.

Marvin...stay another year. Please. You will profit from it.

Anyone who does leave early, I hope you'll come back and get that Carolina degree. Good luck and much gratitude.
