... and one more thing
While I'm on my Olympic soap box I thought I would share another observation.
So the cute little girl at the opening ceremony was miming (I thought it was pretty obvious, but anyway) because this little girl was too ugly to sing in front of the whole world (I think she looks cute too, but never mind). I am not sure why the world was so shocked by this... China is hardly known as a country who will compromise in their efforts to present exactly (and only) what they want the people to see.
What I did love though, was that at the same time as China was condemning one girl to obscurity for her plump cheeks and crooked teeth, this band was being chosen to perform at the United Nation's celebrations to mark International Day of People with Disabilities in December. By any standard they are unique, different... disabled. I love that they are being recognised and honoured for having the courage to have a go, to make music despite the constraints disability places on them.
You go 'Rudely Interrupted'. You are what living life to the full is all about!
