Tinsel and barbed wire: Hong Kong and the WTO

Doug Crets writes:
The taxi driver taking me to the King's Hotel, just outside the security zone on Jaffe Road, says that the city is seeing strange times.
The traffic is slower these days. Not many people out.
He offers me an orange slice, praising it's delivery from California, and in a notoriously Hong Kong way tells me that the $8 oranges are ``very dear, very dear,'' and that the $4, $5 oranges are not worth the price.
Things look normal. Until you look again.
More? Curbside
