« 220 Park: "We missed a spot"? | Main | Avenews: Pottery Barn closing »

Remember how embarrassing it was at Filoli gardens when they were asked not to decorate for Christmas for fear of insulting the Chinese when Xi visited last month?

All along the same lines of not wanting to inconvenience the Chinese- San Francisco International Airport has departures for China that leave in the middle of the night and wake up all the people that live around the airport. Big booms anywhere between midnight and 3am. The Chinese airport in Shanghai opens at 6:40am and closes by 10pm. In Beijing they open at seven in the morning and close by 10pm and at Wuhan they open at six and close by 10:30 at night. And Chongqing? They open at 6:30 and close at 10:30 at night.

The Chinese are getting a healthy good night’s sleep but not the people in the United States. Make it a national security issue.
