Yangtse Evening Post, November 2, 2010

Today's Yangtse Evening Post focuses on its own iPad version; in other news the census officially started yesterday, the first since 2000. The top of the Yangtse Evening Post urges citizens to Please open your door when the census taker comes.

According to the inside report, when reporters from the paper followed census takers, some citizens only wanted to open a crack in the door to talk to them. The Dongguan Times splashed their front page with the picture of a citizen getting a free "environmental bag" which he says will be "good for shopping."
