When Globalization Goes Horribly Awry

Story Number 1: Asian Neverland
Chinese developers have decided to commemorate the late Michael Jackson by building a scaled down Neverland Ranch on Chongming Island off the coast of Shanghai. The Asian Neverland will be 1/17 of the 2,800 acres of the original property and will cost an estimated $15 million. Additionally, in deference to its alternate location, the Asian Neverland will have "Chinese characteristics" so that it blends in with the local environment. In the investors in the project are hoping that it will be completed in time for Shanghai's 2010 World Expo.
Hmm...Nevertheland on the left, and a Chinese temple on the right... yeah...I don't think so.
