People talk about Gonzo Journalism being about the writer being "immersed" in the story, and writing without objectivity (both characteristics of all journalism, although most journalists don't want to admit it).

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Ms. Maersk's informative article. She certainly had to do a lot of research to debunk the chain letter. Read and noted.
BTW I have boycotted since 1984.

I agree with John B., that a lot of research went into debunking this chain letter.
I do agree with the editor's comment at the bottom of the page -
Perhaps a more interesting point is the billions of dollars our Provincial Government is spending, right here in BC, to build Canada's "Pacific Gateway". Considering that 2% of our exports and almost 10% of our imports are traded with China (by far the largest trade deficit we have with any trading partner), isn't Pacific Gateway essentially a giant subsidy to Chinese manufacturers over domestic or US manufacturers? I can understand why you might want to buy WalMart underwear, but why does our Federal Government want us to? Thank You John B. - can't send a green star right now!

Thanks Carrie. Very interesting. Is telling a lie to underline the truth justified?

Fact check the fact checker. I found some of her information slightly off. The route taken by the Emma Mearsk: "The ship set sail on her maiden voyage on 8 September 2006 at 02:00 hours from Aarhus, calling at Gothenburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam, Algeciras, the Suez Canal, and arrived in Singapore on 1 October 2006 at 20:05 hours. Emma Mærsk departed Singapore the next day, headed for Yantian in Shenzhen. She sailed on to Kobe, Nagoya, arrived at Yokohama on 10 October 2006, and returned via Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Tanjung Pelepas, the Suez Canal, Felixstowe, Rotterdam, Bremerhaven, Gothenburg and finally to Aarhus, with arrival at that port 11 November 2006 at 16:00 hours."

It does go to China! Thank you.
