I've often wondered if there is a hair dye (or possibly shoe polish) factory somewhere on the outskirts of Beijing that manufactures dye for the sole use of Politburo members, the way Kikkoman apparently has vats of soy sauce that are reserved for members of the imperial house. Or is it an open bidding system, with hair dye manufacturers competing against one another for the next Five Year Plan-period contract? Do they try to outdo one another on features -- glossy vitality, youthful sheen, yang energy reinvigoration through the follicles -- or is competition solely on price? And further down the supply chain, is there one man somewhere in Zhongnanhai who is hair dyer to the masters of the universe? Because if so, I bet he's got a hell of a tell-all memoir in him.

Also: whatever's in that hair dye (or whatever was in that hair dye two Five Year Plans ago) must be some mean stuff: in the pictures I've seen of Jiang Zemin since they took him off the dye, his hair has looked orange.

There is a special tailor responsible for making Sun Yat-Sun (i.e. Mao) suits for the Chinese commander-in-chief, while, strangely enough, there doesn't seem to be a special tailor for business suits, which are worn far more often.
