Young people are flocking to swashbuckling, get-rich-quick Shanghai. Come back soon to see what they’re wearing on their feet.

I’m just back from a two-week blitz tour of China and am off to Austin for a Religion Newswriters Association conference tomorrow.

There will be plenty to share when I get back.
