Picture From China

An amazing photo from Reuters:

A car stops beside a house in the middle of a newly built road in Wenling, Zhejiang province, China, November 22, 2012. An elderly couple refused to sign an agreement to allow their house to be demolished. They say that compensation offered is not enough to cover rebuilding costs, according to local media. Their house is the only building left standing on a road which is paved through their village

Interesting picture. Kind of tell me that corruption may not be as strong as people like to portray and that the rule of law and respect of private property is big enough for someone to refuse to sell is plot of land and impact on a pretty big infrastructure project....
