Sir Sze-yuen Chung,born November 3rd 1917 and a leading figure in Hong
Kong politics in the 1970s,1980s,and 1990s,died early tomorrow.
(I am writing this at around 11:35 PM New York time on November 13th,
he died at 2 AM Hong Kong time on November 14th).He served as Senior
Unofficial Member of the Legislative and Executive Councils in the
colonial period and was eventually Convenor of the Executive Council
after the People's Republic took over.His 101-year lifespan beats
his predecessor in those Senior Member posts,Sir Yuet-Keung Kan
(1913-2012).

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

Hm,Woo Pak-chuen was Senior Unofficial Member in betewen them on
the Legislative Council and lived 1910-2008....so that job was held
for a decade by three men in succession who each lived to be at least 98.
