Spiritual Civilization Committee

How great is that title for a government department, I think a better translation would be ethics committee. As China's world status elevates, more and more tourists are setting theirs sites on checking out foreign landmarks. In response, Chinese leaders are getting the word out to the masses to not to embarrass themselves by spitting, butting in line, and generally being loud in public, all things that are part of regular Chinese daily life. Unfortunately those that are the worst offenders are the ones with the most status and are therefore the most likely potential tourist abroad. Check out this amusing article, here.
