More on the Nobel Peace Prize

Glenn Reynolds links to a story about Liu Xiaobo's wife, the Chinese police and quotes some comments about Thomas Friedman's desire to see a Chinese political system in the United States. Two excellent sentences to be quoted:
Just because they sold you an iPhone doesn’t mean they’re for freedom.
And about Thomas Friedman:
They’re above criticism so long as he holds the Walter Duranty Chair at the NYT.
Love the idea of a Walter Duranty Chair at the NYT.

Meanwhile, Liu Xiabo's wife seems to have disappeared while the Chinese authorities, having denounced the prize, have lapsed into official silence.
