Chen Guang Cheng Arrives On UA88, To Be Law Fellow

Sat May 19, 2012 11:09 pm

Looks like the saga comes to an apparent close; he's just arrived on UA 88 from PEK-EWR. Not too happy about living, expressing concern about safety about his family. He will study as a fellow at NYU apparently.

Thoughts?

Ain't I a stinker?

He speaks very little English and being blind doesn't help either. One wonders how he would study law at NYU.

His cousin got arrested a week ago, because he pulled a knife and threatened a police officer with it. You have to hate China, they put you behind bars for such a minor thing!  
Never ask somebody if he's a pilot. If he is, he will let you know soon enough!

well, uh, In the US if you brandish a weapon (like a knife) in front of the fuzz, I'm sure they'd arrest you here.

i find it hard to understand sarcasm on the internet.


Either way, anybody in the NYC area have any idea how this guy, who has such a small command of the english language, is doing?

Not to worry about his command of the English language, or being visually impaired for that matter...

Me thinks there's more to this story

How many Chinese spies did China get back in return?

Seriously though, what is the deal here?? So weird.

I've just been in China and interestingly, they've reported quite a bit about the affair. More negativity towards the US than towards Mr Chen, for what it's worth.
