The Chinese have banned the new album, “Chinese Democracy” for its offensive content. Here is your Zen for the morning: if a billion Chinese dance to Chinese Democracy, but do not officially hear it– does it make a sound?

The China National Publications Import & Export (Group) Corp., part of the Ministry of Culture has determined that anything with “democracy” in the name is “not going to work.”

Presumably, James Coffey’s Freedom Train will get you a stint in the salt mines.
