Tom Watkins LEARN CHINESE!
Could Governor Snyder follow Brooks Patterson’s lead and call for the teaching of Chinese in all
Michigan schools? Governor Snyder could catapult Michigan forward in his State of the State (SOS) address by calling for the teaching of Chinese history, culture and language in all of our
schools. The reinvention of Michigan may well require that students learn Chinese and much more about China, the “Middle Kingdom.”

BEIJING - A new national campaign will be launched in China to alleviate the heavyworkloads of students in the compulsory education system, the Ministry of Educationsaid Tuesday.
Someone sent me a set of pictures in QQ E-Mail. The defining characteristics of the mail are Chinese, a language with which I am not familiar. So I use Google's Translator. It does a poor job.
The gist of the message before the pictures appears to reflect my feelings well, and the pictures are so good, that I wanted to preserve them on my blog.
