The latest from NY Times about air pollution in Beijing

Here’s the link and some quotes:

BEIJING — When the Canadian cyclist Svein Tuft arrived in Beijing, he feared the worst. Air pollution. Gray smog. Coughing and wheezing.

None of it occurred. When he raced for 6 ½ hours last Saturday, he was amazed. Beijing’s air, he said, was not even close to bad. The pollution concerns, he decided, “have been a massive hype.”

and another quote:

For his next research project, Rundell is investigating a possible antidote to air pollution — Viagra.

BTW dear readers, if you are Canadians are you feeling cheated by the medal results so far! I know it’s a bitch for the athletes, but even I am feeling the downer about it all.
