Beijing 2008!!!

The picture above is why I never liked wrestling. I did it for a summer as a kid and didn’t like having a sweaty guy in tights rubbing all over me. At least this never happened to me. I think his family jewels are sitting on top of the other guy’s forehead. Nasty!
Anyway, after six weeks of relentless work in Taipei, I’ve finally made it out alive and to Beijing to catch a bit of the Olympics and give my support. The city looks great. Better than I’ve ever seen it before and I’ve been coming here since 1978. I am really surprised that the pollution problem was actually solved. It’s so much better than when I’ve been here in the past. Too bad in less than two weeks, the factories will be cranking up and the construction will resume, bringing all that pollution back.
