Running Dog faces up to the censors

UNFORTUNATELY, Running Dog appears to have fallen foul of at least some of China's sophisticated internet blocking technology, and is no longer visible without a proxy in Shanghai (it is still available in Beijing, apparently). Perhaps it was our excoriating account of a Hu Jintao speech, or the revelations of foul play in the local real estate industry, or perhaps even the description of members of the local government snorting ketamine and hitting on local hookers... Could it even be a temporary phenomenon, to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party? We like to think we deserved it, anyway.

In the meantime, why not try the mysteriously resuscitated Shanghai Eye?
