A little follow up to the Hung story. It seems that the China Press posted ....well...let's call it stole....our story and placed it for several days on their main page. Hundreds of thousands read it, and believed it, then Googled it to our site. When then finally realized it was satire, were very upset. Most of our new oversea readers did not like being fooled and showered us with praise....well...let's call it hate mail and death threats. We received phone calls, emails, unfavorable survey comments, love in the forum, etc. In most part, we fear we may have inadvertently extended Mr. Hung's undeserved 15 minutes of fame. An action we cannot excuse ourselves from. Either way, our sincere regrets to the Hung family. Not for misleading the public, but for having an awkward spectacle for a son.
