Further comment on Chen Guangcheng case

If further proof of the complicity of the central authorities in Chen's case were needed, try searching for his name (陈光诚) on Baidu (www.baidu.com): you get no results, along with a helpful message telling you that your keywords "may have content not in accordance with relevant laws and regulations" (您输入的关键词可能涉及不符合相关法律法规的内容). Interestingly, the results for both Google.cn and Google.com are very similar (they are headed by a nasty - and of course anonymous - character assassination which starts with the claim that because Chen is blind, he hasn't seen the great changes taking place in China!).
