Maybe I am going ga ga but this is one bit of political correctness that I agree with. Handing people back to the Chinese Communists is despicable.

When traveling the world, some Americans turn their backs on events they might consider outrageous if they happened at home. It is time to stop looking the other way, Oakland travel author Jeff Greenwald says. Through a nonprofit he and colleague Kirstin Williams have founded, called the Ethical Traveler, Greenwald gets the message out. And their first recommendation: don't go to Nepal this summer. The Nepalese government has violated the rights of Tibetan refugees by handing adults and teenagers back to the Chinese, and the country must learn that is not right, Greenwald says.
