MPR’s Mid-Morning on December 26; Offline ’til January 5, 2009

Just a quick announcement to let interested readers know that I’ll be a guest for the first hour of Minnesota Public Radio’s Midmorning with Keri Miller on December 26. That’s 9 AM to 10 AM for folks in the Central Time Zone, and 11 PM to Midnight for folks in China. We’ll be discussing the effect of the Global Economic Crisis on China (including, yes, the crash in scrap metal prices), and accepting calls from listeners. MPR’s news stream can be accessed by clicking here.

[UPDATE 12/27: There’s an archived version of the show, here. Or you can download it on itunes … just search for MPR Midmorning Hour 1.]

And, as mentioned before, Shanghai Scrap will resume its regular posting, er, schedule on January 5, 2009. In the meantime, may all your holiday specials be this trippy.
