China: Blogger still imprisoned

Beijing or Bust blogger Wu Hao has been imprisoned without charge for close to two months. With various efforts aiming to secure Wu's release already underway, Migratory Fool blogger suggests how to kick it up a notch in a comment on the latest post of Wu's sister Nina's blog:

“I have an idea. Could you write a personal letter (email) to Bill Gates? He will host a dinner for [Chinese] President Hu [Jintao] on Tuesday, which incidently is your brother's birthday. It's a long shot, but probably worth trying and Mr.Gates is a very decent person.”
