On Beijing and Shenzhen having the world's angriest drivers:

Bjorn Berg - Traffic in Beijing is horrible. I used to be able to see the huge traffic jams from my office. Getting around the city was quite a pain. I don't see it improving any time soon though. Part of the problem there is the poor urban planning, which is not easily rectified.

Letitia Wong - We need to give our mainland compatriots another 15 to 20 years to catch up with others, such as the Japanese. When I lived in Beijing not long ago, almost every day I had to ask them to 'please line up, don't jump the queue' and often I offered my Tempo tissues to them out of sincerity when they sneezed incessantly in front of me inside the subway cabin!

On former premier Zhu Rongji berating Hong Kong's media:

Benjamin Mackie - A little bit of rudeness and sarcasm? Yeah, I will take that over the enforced kowtowing of a state-controlled media.

Charles Henning - There was once a time where the CCP relied on the media to spread their word. Back when they were viewed as altruistic, fighting for 'The People' and against corruption, abuse of power and elitism. The irony oozes slowly like a thick, crude oil.

On C. Y. Leung signalling his bid to stand in the chief executive election:

Patrick Shu Wing-lee - Leung seems to be more prepared to listen, has more understanding towards the poor and needy, more hard-working knowledge than Henry Tang. He at least dared to come out even though he may not have the necessary blessings.

On the decision to leave the salary cuts of appointees in place:

Philip Ho - Chief Executive Tsang and his bunch of incompetent ministers waste public money to keep them in office.
