The “Out with the Old and In with the New & Winston Churchill Day” Run:

As we know (as we know), Churchill was old even when he was young. He was in his mid thirties when he was born and died at the age of 10 thousand, seven hundred and 82 approximately. Nobody really knows because, nobody outlived him. But, he did not live forever and the UK has enjoyed some “fine”, “young” Prime Minsters since. Churchill served the UK as PM during the entirety of the 2nd world war, not an easy job. He is probably most well known for his wonderful quotations. Click here to see some examples.

So our hare today has decided to honor the great man with a reflection on the old of Shanghai, some traditional old areas that are about to be munched in the name of progress and make way for a new CBD of epic proportions, all glass and metal with no Chinese character at all. Ah well, such is the cost of progress. So out with the old in with the new.
