Well I don't know if you know of a prominent chinese author Maxine Hong
Kingston. I'm good friends with her nephew and heres what he told me
when i asked him about Mulan.
For one he told me his aunt is furious, partially becuase they used a
chinese fairy tale. However she is more furious for another more apt
reason. Many years ago she wrote a expanded version of the Mulan fairy
tale, much like the disney version is know, and she complains on getting
no credit for her work as an author. As if it isc true about her claim,
i do not know. Just thought you might like to know.

Wasn't she also in the first season of ER?
And I might add she's the only reason I watched that stinker of a show :)
Why must I be like that, why must I chase the cat?
