China's Communist government observed the 120th anniversary of revolutionary Sun Yat-sen's birthday by denouncing Taiwan's independence and appealing to the island's Nationalist leaders to open talks on reunification. A rally attended by about 10,000 people at the Great Hall of the People in Peking marked the birth of Sun, revered on both the mainland and on Taiwan as the leader of the 1911 revolution that overthrew China's last emperor.

The story on Vancouver, B.C. ("Western Canada's Crossroads of Pacific Culture," Sept. 5), didn't begin to list its charms: convenient public transportation . . . the Dr. Sun Yat-sen Classical Chinese Garden . . . trendy Robson Street, delicious pastries at Murchie's and the Bon Ton . . . (But) it's the people that make Vancouver so wonderful . . . Example: the light-rail system has no motormen and no guards, yet there's no graffiti or vandalism . . . At Queen Elizabeth Park I saw families of all ethnicities enjoying the park and leaving no litter.

Hit the snooze on that ecological doomsday clock for a minute: The world's species may not be going extinct quite as fast as we thought they were. Scientists may be overestimating the crisis by as much as 160%, according to a recent study. The research was published online Wednesday in the journal Nature. While stressing that the global extinction crisis is still indeed a crisis, the study's two authors called for a better mathematical model to predict how fast the world's diversity is disappearing.

The prospect of a Chinese American becoming the American ambassador to China is rousing strong emotions in Beijing, revealing a thicket of conflicting feelings about race, national identity and patriotism. Much of the reaction to President Obama's nominee, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, whose grandfather went to the U.S. from southern China more than a century ago, has been positive. Locke is a former governor of his home state of Washington who has made frequent trips to China, often attracting enthusiastic crowds.
