Talk about beyond the call of duty: A Chinese policewoman helped save the lives of nine babies by breast-feeding them after they were orphaned or separated from their mothers as a result of the May 12 earthquake. In a very sweet way, she's all humble and 'eh, whatever' about it, too:
"I am breast-feeding, so I can feed babies … This was a small thing, not worth mentioning."
Right, except for the part where she kept nine babies alive in a plot twist that feels straight out of Steinbeck. The 29-year-old mother, Jiang Xiaojuan, has become a celebrity in China, and is being hailed as a hero on the papers' front pages. As the death toll soars past 50,000, it's nice to have a little good news to celebrate. You can remember Jiang next time someone complains about the evils of women popping out their boobs in public.
