Twisting Lei Feng into many shapes

"WHEN you promote frugality, you say Lei Feng was a model of modest living; when you promote consumption, you say even a frugal man like Lei Feng wore watches and leather clothes. Lei Feng is not a basket, into which you throw anything as you like. I've noticed a slogan saying that Lei Feng was a model of family planning. The fact is that Lei Feng was never married. Please don't treat Lei Feng as a political 'Transformer' conjured up in all possible shapes.
Wang Xingdong, president of the China Film Literature Association, speaking at the ongoing CPPCC (Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference) session on Sunday
