Farewell to Michael

The old Chinese man who sells newspapers at the train station had a little shrine set up this morning: a burning candle, a vase of lucky bamboo, and a ceramic panda propped up against the front page of today's New York Times.

I still cannot believe that this happened. At first, I thought that it was only a claim to sell newspapers. I really thought that he had been legally dead due to a temporary cardiac arrest, but that he had finally recovered.

It is a nice story, Tai.

Perhaps he faked his death so he could disappear and start a new life, someplace far, far away....
