Looking at the first two photos I've posted in this week's Photo Hunt entry, you probably thought to yourself: Now, then, what's so sad about those? Next, you might have wondered: And how does the third photo of Christie Hefner, a couple of male suits (one each from the USA and Hong Kong) and two playboy bunnies have to do with the first two photos?
Well, it's not too often that I get on a soapbox on this blog but frankly, I find it pretty sad that Macau, the former Portuguese enclave turned Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China -- the same Macau whose beautiful historic center has been world heritage listed --is slated to be home to a Playboy Mansion come 2009. Put another way: Is this *really* progress? Is this what is needed to contribute to the territory's economic rise? If so, what a sad statement that makes about the still sadly sexist, often overly sinful world in which we live... :(
