The Chinese did in the opening ceremony of the olympics what they have been doing for years on their economy -- distort reality. And they want us to believe the story of the brave boy who survived the earthquake and pulled others from the rubble? That is a carefully manufactured story too.

While the government put on a steely smile that included a manufactured breeze to flap the Chinese and Olympic flags -- even as fans underneath furiously fanned themselves -- the real story was in the stands.
