We received this in the mail:
Writing from Beijing china to let you know that if anyone swings through the PRC we can help them swing out if you can link them to www.chinaswings.com."
From my perspective as the webmaster of jitterbuzz.com -- a child of the "Red Scares" of the 1950s -- I am stunned! I am pleased to see that we are outsourcing Swing Dancing to the People's Republic of China. I want all of you Lindy Hoppers in China to go out and form great big UNIONS to demand higher wages. Bring in the Teamsters to help you out...
