A gaffe by China's usually staid state-run media has left a popular newspaper here with onion on its face. Readers of the Beijing Evening News, one of the capital's largest-circulation newspapers, learned this week that the U.S. Congress had threatened to move out of Washington unless a fancy new Capitol was built. "Don't get us wrong. We actually love the dilapidated [old] building," House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) was quoted as saying.
