Wait Until He Reads Their Newspapers....

Errors? Xinhua?

A HOTEL manager has filed a suit against a local bookstore for selling him a copy of one of the country's most definitive dictionaries, which he claims is riddled with errors.

Chen Dingxiang said he has found more than 3,000 mistakes in the latest version of the Xinhua Dictionary published by the Commercial Press.

Who says America has a monopoly on frivolous lawsuits?
