I stayed up ’til early this morning And my eyes were burning with pain.

“Ain’t no China Internet highway anymore

You gotta walk the darkened hutongs like before

Them cables out near Taiwan broken lay

Beside them gigabytes of data stay

Ain’t no China Internet highway anymore”

—Internet Hutong Blues by Lonnie “Pearl River Delta” Hodge INTERNET CHINA I now think the best way to cripple a country and demoralize its citizenry is to disable is not with bombs and military incursions. The fastest way to revert an economy to the dark ages is to unplug it from the Ineternet. I am still suffering from the Internet Hutong (Alleyway) Blues: My connection is so slow (How slow is it? If I were that slow I could get hit by a parked car!) I can no longer tell the censored sites from the ones timed out by connection problems.

The Internet will get better and hopefully my humor as well….
