The Defiance Of Major General Xu Qinxian Over Tiananmen Square

Linking to stories in the New York Times is not a habit I want to get into, but this piece by Andrew Jacobs and Chris Buckley deserves notice here, for future recall by this extended memory instrument of mine. I had not previously known about Major General Xu's outright defiance.
