I started this blog with the intention of making and keeping a promise to readers that I would blog only about Chinese law and not waste their time with self-indulgent ramblings on other topics. I'm going to go off topic here, but only to present something that will be of interest to all sinologists: a marvelous account of the origins of ping pong by Alice Lyman Miller of the Hoover Institution (posted here with permission) that might otherwise never be broadly circulated.

Here's an announcement from the US-China Business Council:
The U.S.-China Legal Cooperation Fund invites proposals seeking grants to fund projects fostering rule of law in China, to be carried out jointly by American and Chinese not-for-profit participants.
The Fund's objective is to promote respected, transparent, impartial and equitable legal processes and institutions through U.S.-China bilateral cooperation.
The Fall 2008 deadline for submission of proposals is October 1, 2008.
