hatefilled racist homphobic zealot fundamentalist bigoted pieces of shit who fear change, intelligence, thought, curiosity, and anything that is in any way different than me" in republicanese.

7. where in the Orient are you going?
We went to China last September... probably going back again next year. Maybe sooner if my wife & I can get long enough off from work together.

11. I was going to say...
My wife & I and our then 18 month old daughter went from CT to China last year for 2 weeks. For round trip plane tickets from LA and back, plus 7 nights in a hotel and a tour of Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou & a few other areas, with meals included for those 7 days, it was like $2,800.

We had to get to LA on our own, and we stayed the last week in Nanjing at our own expense...
