I think your article about China was great. I think the Olympics came off great. But, in my opinion, we should revisit the country now that the games are over. The contrast between before and after will probably be shocking. Even more so than the death of one of our coaches. Worse than the people being prohibited to even walk inside an imaginary set of temporary borders; a country that is not even close to the one portrayed; a country that should be ashamed of the human rights violations, anywhere from the suppression of the monks in Tibet, to the prisons holding people that did little more than what we have the freedom to do in this country.
No, China did little more than put on a good face for the short time the rest of the world was looking. We should not forget that either now, or in November when we have our right to vote.
