The torch came through Seoul yesterday. Chinese students came out to support the Olympics. Lots of people came out to support the Olympics. Some people came out to support human rights. I am not sure what is going on in this video, but it does not look good for the guy who is getting hit with the big flag. Remember, this is from yesterday in Seoul, not China.

china daily says:

"Spectators of the Beijing Olympic torch relay were greatly annoyed and angered by Tibetan separatists and their supporters attempting to disrupt the Monday event in Paris, the fifth leg of the flame's global tour.

"We've come here only to watch the torch relay," said a Paris student, who only gave his first name as Mark.

"What in the world does this have anything to do with us except for annoying us?" he added, pointing to Tibetan separatist demonstrators."

Catfish in the press

Coldfront has posted the 2007 year in review. Matthew Langley and Catfish got some nice things said. Letters Toward Jim is nominated for Best Thirteenth Poem and Best Author Photo.

In other news, I see that Phoebe will be reviewing Catfish books. Not sure which one or if both.
