Spielberg and the Olympics

Posted in 2008 Olympics at 9:36 am by Nicole

It’s going to be a very, very interesting year between now and August of 2008. “Interesting,” of course, being one of the most meaningless words in a writer’s arsenal…a cop-out, almost, instead of saying the obvious: it’s going to be hard, it’s going to be fascinating, it’s going to set the tone for many years of relations between China and the West. The CSB has to do its part in reporting and reflecting on all that is happening, even (perhaps especially) when the news isn’t kind to China.

What to make of this, I don’ t know yet…but reports are that Steven Spielberg may be re-evaulating his commitment to working with the Chinese on the opening ceremony for the 2008 Olympics because of the Chinese government’s perceived lack of action on the Darfur humanitarian crisis.
