What is going on at the top levels of Chinese leadership?

There is an almost classic mixture of personal feuds, murder and corruption going on with the Chinese political elite.

Not much of a surprise, but the failure of the corporate media to cover this with the intelligence of Perry Link's article in the NY Review of Books is a disservice to Americans seeking an explanation and discussion of the events.

I was initially prepared to believe the fella's wife was guilty of murder, and still am. I was also prepared to believe her husband was being made a scapegoat for his wife's conduct in order to undermine the fella's populism, as he was known as the guy who was pushing for increasing wages of workers in China. I am less sure now, and wondering whether he is corrupt in that sort of Adam Clayton Powell way...though on a much larger scale than Powell.

An article like this is very helpful and provides a basis to evaluate and analyze further information as it comes across the Internet and newspapers.
