Chinese Girls Team?

Have you been watching the Olympic coverage? What am I saying, of course you have. How could you avoid it if you tried?

Anyway, this current scandal with the Chinese gymnastics team is so creepy. You look at these girls and they either look 9 years old or, at best, anorexic 15 year olds. I think the one I noticed the most last night was Yang Yilin. Don't get me wrong, I think they are all beautiful and amazingly talented. But somebody please feed that kid! She just looks sickly and makes me worry about her.

I think I'd be happier with 5-year olds competing, as long as I felt like they were healthy. Sheesh.
