The Year of the T. Rex?

By Howard Schneider

The Obama-Hu summit clearly has the commercial juices flowing, with some major deals already announced in advance of the Chinese president's visit. So what better time to buy a brontosaurus?

At least that seems to be the thinking from one aggressive entrepreneur -- apparently from China -- who e-mailed photos of his product line to a Washington Post reporter today in hopes of a "long-term cooperative relation." I personally think the old linotype machine at the Post's entrance is dinosaur enough. We wouldn't want the metaphors to get out of hand.

And as far as the U.S.-China relationship is concerned, this does make us wonder: Who's the triceratops (see photo above)?
