On the Relative Merits of Xenophobia

At least we don't have to worry about drinking any Chinese milk here in the Korea. Of course, we can't get real cheese, unsweetened potato chips, or good old-fashioned American beef--but at least the Korean market's violent fear of foreign foodstuffs has gotten something right: don't import anything edible from China. (Though I can say from experience that appliances, by deceptively German-sounding Haier, are quite alright.)
