Chinese to launch manned spacecraft?

— 12:17 AM on February 2, 2000

The BBC is reporting that China "may attempt a manned space flight to usher in the Year of the Dragon which begins on 5 February."

Meanwhile, the Chinese government is moving to stamp out that pesky threat, Internet Cafes. No, not because said cafes are pretentious, snotty, and expensive; the crackdown is happening because "The Communist Party regards technology as potentially the biggest threat to its power and views with alarm the spread of 'cyber' caf├ęs and the use of the Internet by dissidents."

Go figure.
