China: Truth penetrates firewall

In ‘China Good News Vol. 3‘, the Laowiseass blogger posts a letter from a reader:

“I just saw a PBS documentary about what happened in Beijing in the summer of 1989 with my roommates. The three of us were shocked by not only the bloody, barbarian event, but also the fact we've been successfully kept unaware of it for so long. The history textbook never mentions it. It's like all trust, confidence and faith fall apart.”
