- Apr 2, 2003"Stowaways in Paradise" may be racist by today's standard, but it certainly wasn't in the period in which it was written. Just like "Tom Sawyer" and others, it was probably towards the center or left for its time. michael

Interesting spam, but spam nonetheless.
Funny, in inviting foreign industry to locate in Shaoxing Paojiang Industrial
Zone, Water Kim of the Paojiang Industrial Zone Foreign Investment Bureau
doesn't mention the easy availability of ten cent an hour workers, children,
and probably slave laborers. Guess they assume that if we're their kind of
people, we know that already.
Wonder what D.B. would think. His "Stowaways in Paradise" - the only one of
his works I know well - is too racist to reprint, but I think that if he had
lived in a better time he would not have written the book the way he did.
