Alright, if you want to protest the Beijing Olympics, then don't go. And is the pollution really that bad indoors in China? I had no idea. Or maybe the US Cycling Team was a tad, paranoid, over dramatic?
This whole thing reminds me of a child who is making weird faces when they try new food at a relatives house...Usually someone tells them to knock it off and stop being so dramatic. If Aunt Gertrude has been eating this crap her whole life...one meal isn't going to kill you...Come on people, Manners.
