  4. Been reading your articles in The World. You sound like someone who is disappointed in your experience – and as someone who expects the people you serve to conform to your ideals. Perhaps you might read “River Town” by Peter Kessler. A Beijing correspondent for The New Yorker, he studied English literature at Princeton and Oxford before heading to China as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1996. His students, though, are the ones who taught him about the ways of Fuling — and about the complex process of understanding that takes place when one is immersed in a radically different society.

  5. You spelled “views” wrong. Miss you bud.
