Tiananmen Square Massacre anniversary

It happened on June 4, 1989 (6/4/89).  The Shanghai stock market fell 64.89 points today.  Because the Chinese government has banned the use of the term "64" online this week, apolitical discussions about the market's performance today have been muted.

Thank you for remembering Tiananmen. I had not acknoledged the anniversary, even less the weird and fantastic coincidence with the Shanghai exchange.
