Crosspost: Is it OK to steal hotel amenities? – CNN.com

This is a cute little article on the whole “Oh wow this is so cute I must keep it” reaction that sometimes hits us when we’re staying at hotels…

Is it OK to steal hotel amenities? – CNN.com

Makes me wish I’d kept some of the really nice stuff I saw at places like Westin Osaka…  (Can I um… take the entire bathroom home?)

Jackie Chans China comments prompt backlash AP – Yahoo Movies

Jackie Chans China comments prompt backlash AP – Yahoo Movies

“I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not,” Chan said Saturday. “I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”  — Jackie Chan 

Okay — while I think some of this could be out of context information, and I can see some potential translation issues…  The next statement really is just begging for an outcry from Hong Kong and Taiwan..

He went on to say that freedoms in Hong Kong and Taiwan made those societies “chaotic.”

*headpalm*  Way to go Jackie.  You already managed to alienate a bunch of the US and foreign audience with some of your recent comments, and now you hammer at the Hong Kong and Taiwan audience as well?  Are you *trying* to render yourself a Mainland only movie star? 

One of Jackie’s autobiographies (with help of a ghost writer) has him admitting that he can be a bit of a jerk.  He also flips to the bottle sometimes.   His recent behavior has really scrubbed off some of my interest in him as a movie producer and star..  -_-;;
