Teng Biao - Missing Chinese Human Rights Lawyer

So admittedly I haven't been here in a while. I'll try to be better, I promise. In the meantime, please take a look at this story about Chinese Human Rights lawyer Teng Biao. Mr. Teng, a campaigner for stronger political rights and rights of migrant workers, among other things, called home before leaving work on Thursday night and has not been seen since.Friends and family believe he has been secretly detained by police. Some people think there's nothing you can do about things like this but those people are wrong - we can keep watching.

BTW, and only for the record since no one else has commented, Teng Biao was released after a couple of days in jail. Still, jail sucks, no doubt.
