lees unite!

Last weekend, hundreds of people from around the country who share the Chinese surname "Lee" gathered in Los Angeles' Chinatown to celebrate the 19th national convention of the Lee Family Assn: Lee? Your party is here Formed nearly a century and a half ago in San Francisco, the group provided members a place of refuge and aid in Chinatowns across the United States, like many other Chinese family and village associations of its kind. The convention, which happens every three years, is meant to represent the 100,000 Lees living in the United States, and is apparently rivaled in size by the Wong group. Are we going to have a fight on our hands? Wongs vs. Lees? Bring it.
