My friend Michael McDermott runs the largest foreign film production operation in Beijing, Gung Ho Films, and he sent me this photo that he took on August 1st in Beijing.
I have to admit that the air ‘looks’ good — which may bode well for the Olympic Games.

But I am reminded of what it could have looked like in this photo that James Fallows sent me last year and which I posted on July 27, 2007.
What a difference a year can make. . .perhaps. Let’s see how things turn out when the games start.
