Meanwhile,  Anita Hill avoids the inevitable comparison, noting only that charges of sexual misconduct are weigh differently now than when she raised them against Clarence Thomas 20 years ago.   - The Washington Post, CBS News, Time

Could the rise of China mean the end of America's Chinatown?

    Its time the average American realized that the only way for them to save their jobs and thus their economy is to:
    1. Buy American, preferably local.
    2. Buy from the small neighbourhood store instead of the large corporations.
    There is absolutely no other solution. You might save a couple of bucks buying 'made in china', but in the long run you are going to end up exporting your jobs to them.
    Buying from large corporations means you are most probably buying stuff made elsewhere, at the cost of American jobs.
    There are many websites to point you to 'made in America' on google.
