Ai Weiwei Released

I woke up this morning to an email stating that Ai Weiwei was released from 81 days of detainment.  He is now a 10 minute can ride from where i am staying in Beijing!  Obviously, many news sources have covered the story.  Below is a screen shot of a portion of the email i received from Alison Klayman and  Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry.   Please check out the links!
