Actually, I do have a picture (it's from the hotel guide book) and it's listed (among other things) with drugs, prostitution, pornography, etc.   How do I post a photo to the mailing list?  Do I just add as a regular email attachment?



P.S. I realized (perhaps very lately) that the entire Judeo-Xian precept rests upon the idea of an angry, authoritarian, anthropomorphic deity who needs to be appeased through sacrifices.  (And perhaps Jesus was a man who learned certain concepts from other cultures, but the story got adapted and revised for the angry-god culture...)

You should take a picture of the sign.  Very funny.

Feudal Superstition

The Chinese hotel where I'm staying lists among its regulations: "No engaging in feudal superstition..."  

...Telling it like it is, maybe?
