Q: Anyone know why there are cops at every Beijing street corner these days?

They were even outside my residential compound, next to a middle school, this morning. And my place is fairly remote.

Yesterday, they were at the main intersections next to the National Library, where there's really nothing. There were 12 or more of them just at one intersection.

 

Is there something going on I don't know about?

I'd say the crackdown plus they want to look cool carrying that big gun of theirs. I ran down the street and hit the hat off of one of those police officers he just looked at me and smiled. He thought it was the wind that did it!

It is because of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting taking place here. A lot of big-wigs from five different countries are meeting so security is tight.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
