Take a guess: How much Kansas land does China own? 

It’s probably not a lot — you probably would have heard something about it if so — but it can’t be nothing, right? American right-wingers have spent much of the last year raising alarms about Chinese communists buying up farmland across the country and passing laws against foreign ownership, so there’s got to be a there there. Right?
