That’s right, folks. You heard that right. ALL of your party plans for tonight will have to be cancelled because a national day of mourning has been declared today for the over 2,000 victims of last week’s devastating earthquake in Qinghai province, and punishment awaits all venue operators that flout the public entertainment ban. In the last mourning decreed two years ago after the Wenchuan earthquake, three minutes of silence were observed simultaneously as all of China ground to a halt and emotions flowed freely. Following a tradition started from then, Chinese internet portals have once again turned their homepage black and white.
