Tiger Mom? Hu? What? Have you been living under a gigantic potsticker?

Maybe Tiger Mother Amy Chua is going to the state dinner tonight with President Hu? 

Don’t know if she’s on the list, but the way her PR has been handling it wouldn’t suprise me if she shows up. We know Speaker Boehner’s not showing up. Chua can get his spot. Or she can follow the Salahis. They’ll probably be there, naturally.

If Chua does meet Hu, that would make for an interesting Tiger Summit (Tiger Mom and Tiger Dad).

They can talk about human rights and parenting.

Emil Guillermo: Check out my new blog on the AALDEF site…

It’s my privilege to associate with the  Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, in starting a new blog on Asian American issues and concerns. 


I’ll still go “Amok” here, of course, but check out the blog and see what AALDEF is doing for the broader Asian American community.

This is the first time I’ve written under the masthead of a non-profit not focused strictly on journalism.  But just as I did on op-ed pages for other publications, AALDEF has given me the independence to post my opinions on the news as I see it. 

I hope you enjoy the posts there as much as you like the assorted posts here at Amok.com.
