Hey China!

Hey China! You are really starting to bug me. This obsession with image has gotten way out of control. Take it easy on yourself. The world respects you. A lot. You've been around for thousands and thousands of years. You can synchronize 2,008 men to drum in unison. Impressive. You invented paper (among many other things) for crying out loud. No need for the men's gymnastic coach to feel he must throw himself off a building if he doesn't win gold. C'mon. What are you doing to your people? Oh, and replacing that little girl who sang with a double (because she wasn't cute enough)... Not cool.

Knock it off and enjoy the games!

  1. I didn't hear about them replacing the girl because she wasn't cute enough. That is really sad.

  3. I was upset when they talked about one of the female gymnasts who wanted to quit gymnastics and her parents wouldn't let her come home...and that they only get to call home once a year. Talk about pressure.
