Chinese Freedom Fighter

5:15 PM -- Are any of you as peeved as I am at paying absurdly inflated movie ticket prices and then being compelled to sit through a half-dozen commercials? OK. Probably not. Anyway, The Vancouver Sun reports from Beijing on my new hero:

    A Chinese woman is suing a cinema and the distributors of domestic box-office hit "Aftershock" for wasting her time by showing 20 minutes of commercials before the movie, state media said Tuesday...

    Chen is demanding the companies refund her 35-yuan ticket (5.20 dollars), pay her 35 yuan in compensation and one yuan for emotional damages and write her an apology, the report said.
Let's make this a class-action. But I want at least 75 yuan. Movies are expensive in the City.

I can imagine what the Chairman might say about this: When you sit down to the Devil's table, you must be willing to swallow his omelette. He was a big fan of egg metaphors.
