No word from Imprisoned person...because no freedom no voice inside jail. One thing good her wife will go to collect Prize money, that is something very important.

"Chinese authorities, who called Liu a criminal"

The Chinese authorities are the criminals, not Liu.

Instead of irritation, China should be proud, chinese people should be proud! Because it is very normal,very natural to be proud when someone of your people receives this Nobel Prize honor.

On related news, Prime Minister Wen says basically the same stuff as Liu, on CNN. "I believe freedom of speech is indispensable for any country ... I often say that we should not only let people have the freedom of speech. We, more importantly, must create conditions to let them criticize the work of the government," he said.

And I actually believe he is sincere. So the question is : will he get purged, or is change actually possible.

Neither. This is typical of their good-cop, bad-cop routine that's been going on for some time. It keeps the hoi polloi off balance.

"that Liu’s wife—who had been hoping to visit him Saturday and tell him the news of the award—has “disappeared” and he is worried she may be in police custody"

Just what I expected! If you think about then the Chinese government isn't so different from the Gestapo!

It's just ass backwards to think of the sheer manpower and resources this country is investing to make sure as few people as possible know that one of their citizens won the Nobel Peace Prize.

China communist party is the only obstruction to real revival of Chinese civilization. Any people who hates China Should support Communist, and vice versa.

Thanks, these are exactly the words I have been looking for.

Let's hope Wen won't end up like Zhao ziyang in 1989.

Irony is Liu Xiaobo may well have to come to the defense of Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin or Dennis Prager if Obama and Co get their way...
