Beijing is my blue heaven

Fourth-Place Medal

I have to admit that I did not think it would work. China assured the world that Beijing's well-known smog problem would be cleared up in time for the Opening Ceremonies. I thought that it would be like cleaning the pee out of a pool.

In a great shock to no one, I was wrong. The efforts China has put into cleaning up the air, which included limiting car use and shutting down factories, seems to have worked. The pollution has decreased, and the Washington Post's Dan Steinberg reports that on his arrival, he saw blue skies. I wonder what the U.S Olympians will do with the super-secret masks?

I don't think those are the masks, Michael.
