The Empire State Building was lit up in garish red and yellow Wednesday night.
Ostensibly to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.
It also celebrates two generations of the most murderous regime in the history of man.
Presumably it's ok now because China is strong and up-and-coming and we all want to do business.
Aside from the visceral disgust my first thought was this classic line from Carl Fox [Martin Sheen] from the movie "Wall Street":
"I don't go to bed with no whore, and I don't wake up with no whore. That's how I live with myself."
