Re. Sydney Olympics, justice and fairplay
Dear Dr. Lee,
I tried getting into the webpage you listed on Dr. Wen Ho Lee but the
page came up with an error. So I went to the main page ASIANOW and got
The case of Dr. Wen Ho Lee being accused of espionage is well known.
There is no doubt that the accusation was a travesty of justice. Guilt
by association or, to put it more strongly, racial profiling is
unfortunately still very much a part of life in America. But what I
think is great about America is that there is always hope and a chance
for the truth to come out.
I am relisting the URL for the webpage on the article where Bill Moyers
addressed the History of Chinese in America: From American Revolution to
Here again Bill Moyers pointed out the wrongs committed against Chinese
in America, the misconception of China, etc. I think the article speaks
for itself and I hope everyone reads it.
As for the Women Soccer match between China and the U.S., I did not get
to see it. I think the handball rule for penalty is if a defending
player commits a handball infraction within the penalty area, whether it
was on purpose or accidental, a penalty is automatically given. If it's
committed outside the small penalty box but within the large box where
the goalie can handle the ball and it was on purpose, a penalty kick
automatic but no penalty if it was accidental, it's up to the referee to
decide. Isn't there some rule where a team can vote against a referee
from a match, if the referee was considered bias on another game? I
seriously hope that China will request the rule to be applied to any
future matches they will play.
