BEIJING -- Sounding more like the chairman of General Motors than the general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, Jiang Zemin called yesterday for the speeding up of China's capitalist-style economic reforms, including the sale of some of the nation's lumbering state-owned enterprises.In an address on the opening day of the China's 15th Party Congress, the 71-year-old leader strongly endorsed the reforms of his predecessor, the late Deng Xiaoping, and seemed to assure that the world's largest country would continue its rapid march toward a market economy.

When, at long last, will people understand that the left is boring? The question came to mind as I was dipping in and out of Oliver Stone's miasmic 700-plus-page tome. I'll never read the whole thing, and not because it's a left-wing screed full of slimy distortions about the evils of the United States (though that doesn't help). It's that it's boring. Mr. Stone and co-author Peter Kuznick call their book "The Untold History of the United States," except, again, it isn't. This story has been told countless times before.

As Mitt Romneycontinued to build his delegate count for the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night with five more primary victories, his new campaign slogan proclaimed: "A better America begins tonight. " The message seemed to announce that the November election was all over but the shouting, although he has yet to be nominated by a party still demonstrably cool to him, let alone anointed by the American voters as their next president. Actually, all that was beginning that night in Mr. Romney's upbeat speech in Manchester, N.H., the site of his first 2012 primary success, was the dead period that lies ahead until the Republican convention officially designates him, as matters now stand, as the GOP nominee.

In a recent newspaper article, culture critic William J. Bennett and C. Delores Tucker, president of the National Political Congress of Black Women, stressed the diabolic effect of lewd music on our society. But music is not our only problem.

America is at its best when our guiding principles of free enterprise and giving people a helping hand work together. The free enterprise system created our national wealth and employment opportunities. However, free enterprise also eliminated 3 million American jobs in the 2000s while creating 2.4 million new jobs overseas. Meanwhile, Apple set new records for "legal" tax evasion. The free enterprise system is focused on creating jobs for minimum wages, not necessarily in the U.S. That implies that the best opportunities for creating jobs are in the public sector.

"Stormy Weather," by Carl Hiaasen. New York: Knopf. 352 pages. $24 Anyone who remembers the devastation caused by Hurricane Andrew also might recall that the tragedy was compounded by carloads of thieves and con artists who arrived in the storm's wake.

Warren Buffett was right for his call for higher taxes/debunking the "lost jobs" claim of the ideologues ("Buffett wants wealthier Americans taxed more," Aug. 16). Thanks to the tea party, controlling the spiraling debt is now a priority. Now the tea party representatives need to actually "govern. " The magnitude of the debt cannot be addressed by spending cuts alone! The GOP hard line of "no new taxes" has morphed into an idiotic stand on retaining the multiple special deals/exemptions, etc. The GOP has lost its focus of its bedrock support of the free enterprise system.
