It appears that Chinese media has taken a particular shine to Andrea Catsimatidis, daughter of Gristedes owner and Republican New York City mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis. She's on a trip with her husband, the grandson of Richard Nixon (yes), to recreate the former president's trip to the Great Wall with his wife in 1972. Catsimatidis the Younger made it on the cover of the China Daily, while China Radio International reminded us how much Chinese journalists love their click-through slideshows. (Hint: They love their click-through slideshows a lot.)

HE KEEPS HIS STORES OPEN AND THEY MAKE MONEY. ALL COMPANIES HAVE ISSUES, HOWEVER THIS NONSENSE IS BEING BROUGHT OUT BECAUSE HE IS RUNNING FOR MAYOR, WHICH IN FACT HE WILL MAKE A GREAT ONE AT THAT. PEOPLE JUST LOVE TO TALK WHEN THEY REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

Her appearance is quite provocative to the Chinese. It is notable that she has been quoted in the Times for repeated scolding her mayoral candidate father just how dirty Gristedes is. Surely he knows it having received so many fines. If he just keeps the stores open for the sake of the employees why are so many of them suing him for unfair labor practices?
