Cover Your Rig, Comrade

I've also been covering scintillating stories such as "Comrade Condom." Someone at AP apparently saw it at http://www.asiasentinel.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=254&Itemid=34 and/or at (warning, Mature Content Ahead, Not Safe for Work!) http://www.asiansexgazette.com/asg/china/china06news22.htm and managed to do an update that China Daily posted, here: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2006-11/13/content_732031.htm

Sad to say, Lei Feng condoms are now verboten, despite what the company rep assured me last week. If you don't know who Lei Feng was and wonder what the connection is with condoms click one of the first two links. The content is the same on both, though the sites have, shall we say, er, different tones.
Comments:
I just finished a book by a Chinese woman who's name escapes me right now. It's about growing up in China during the cultural revolution. She describes in great detail the Lei Feng saga.
