Jim and Greg stand up and cheer for Women’s Tennis Association President Steve Simon and numerous players for publicly demanding that China prove that longtime tennis star Peng Shuai is alive and well and their her allegations of rape against a former high-ranking communist party official be seriously investigated. And they cheer Simon for willing to lose a billion dollars by pulling our of events in China if his concerns are not addressed quickly. They also cringe as the House of Representatives passes the bloated, deficit-growing spending bill known as Build Back Better, but they take a bit of solace in knowing this version likely won’t become law. And they fire back at an MSNBC columnist for telling parents that making demands about school policy and the curriculum is like telling a surgeon how to operate on your child.

    Just wondering.  If, instead of summarily executing the tennis player, China summarily executes the accused coach, would that satisfy WTA?  I’m not sure China knows how to do anything else.

    If it were merely a coach, this might fly with the Chinese government.

    But it’s “a former high-ranking communist party official”; i.e., one of the ruling elite.

    Similarly, Lavrenti Beria molested hundreds of underage girls before the rest of the Soviet leadership finally got around to putting a bullet in his head.
