Good China stories that I missed in the summer doldrums

Even with all the reading about China that I do, some stuff still slips through the cracks. It’s been a fairly slow summer news wise, so lately I’ve been challenging people to tell me about some interesting stories. Here are a few good pieces that I missed when they first came out–thanks to various journalist friends for passing these on.
