It seems I have good reason to consider that the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony lacked a degree of spontaneity.
First we learnt that the 'footprint' fireworks seen on television were simulated animations. And now we are told that the little girl in red who sang in the ceremony was miming her singing to another girl's voice. The real singer was replaced shortly before the ceremony because a member of the Party Leadership felt she wasn't pretty enough.
Can it be too long before the conspiracy theorists who question the events of 9/11 and the 1969 moon landing question whether the Olympics are actually happening in Beijing at all?
And whilst we ponder that, I ask...is this blog real at all?
