Spitting Image

Dear Indigna,

China has warned its traveling populace that “spitting, slurping food and cutting in line . . . are sometimes not tolerated abroad.” Apparently some prissy Singapore hotels “are upset with Chinese tourists spitting in their rooms and smoking in bed.” Isn’t this just another example of the kind of Big Brother authoritarianism we’ve come to expect from the Chinese and Singapore governments?

Dear Ptoooey,

When my cousins visit from Shanghai, can they stay at your house?
