China: Hu Jintao heckled

Richard and readers at The Peking Duck add to the discussion on Chinese president Hu Jintao's heckler at the White House yesterday:

“I admire this woman's courage though I don't in any way admire her organization. I don't see anything wrong with the way she was handled, though there's something definitely wrong with the screening process that let her get so close to Hu in the first place. To applaud her as a hero seems a bit much to me,” writes Richard.
