One Year Anniversary

While I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, I also want to remember Liu Xiaobo who will be marking his first anniversary in prison after being convicted of "inciting subversion of state power" last Christmas.

For someone behind bars he has achieved one of the highest humanist accolades -- the Nobel Peace prize.

Liu was definitely a news maker this year.

And I hope he continues to be covered in the media as a symbol of China's insecurity and shame.
