( 10:51 PM ) teahouse
This was just about the most heartbreaking thing I've ever read about the actions of a lawyer.
Oh, and did anyone watch the U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps win the gold medal in the 400m individual medley? What was up with the playing of the U.S. national anthem during the medal ceremony?
It was like a Chinese orchestra had recorded it, but got it totally wrong - verses were repeated, and the national anthem was abruptly cut off 10 seconds from the end.
Even President Bush, who was sitting in the audience, looked puzzled.
Well, even more than he usually does.#
