To be ‘gracious,’ &c.

Saw a headline: “Beijing Lawyers Beaten for Representing Falun Gong Case” (over this article). I thought, “Thank heaven there are lawyers in China willing to defend Falun Gong people. Those lawyers must be among the bravest people on earth.” And our sleeksters fancy themselves virtuous and heroic for defending Guantanamo terrorists. They risk nothing, our sleek lawyers; the Chinese ones risk everything.
