Smog Returns, No Comments, and Other Updates
In fairness, after praising the blue skies two days ago, I should admit that most trained weatherpersons would not refer to the skies today as "clear," in the traditional sense. More like "well-insulated." "Or thicker than a binging offensive lineman on anti-depressants." Or, "quite filling," since you actually do feel like you've got a mouthful of the stuff if you open too wide. China might be seeing more of this in upcoming days.
If you were wont to take cheap shots, you might say that the above photo is sort of a summary of this Olympics. In order, we have fencing, the military, fencing, red tape (hard to see but I swear it was there), fencing, some sort of newly constructed building, smog, fencing, and then the Olympics, off there in the back somewhere. It's the Water Cube, where swimming will be swum. Apparently, it's smoggy in there.
In other updates, I need to tell you that all our sports blogs are undergoing maintenance from about noon today until about 8 a.m. on Wednesday. All my scheduled items, written in the early-morning hours, should still appear throughout the day, but you won't be able to comment on anything in that time. So post all your comments now! Or just send me an e-mail containing your pithiest thoughts!
And finally, the Internet. Like you, I was eagerly anticipating a spin through all the most controversial sites I could imagine, to see what might be censored and what might not be, and several of you have e-mailed me asking for a report. But 'twas not to be. The Post has sprung for a dedicated T1 line, which means we're not subject to any of the restrictions or speed issues that afflict the regular old "media work room" people. Which means that we're free to view all the
porn controversial political Web sites we'd like.
