Feeling Snubbed

Last week the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs, the government agency that oversees the "foreign experts"  announced it's list of the favorite foreigners in China during the past 30 years of "Opening and Reform."  I am one of these so-called "foreign experts"–I even have a card to prove it!
It's kind of hard to swallow that I've been a foreign expert here for 24 years and am still not a favorite! Bummer!
