Olympic rings transform China

Olympic rings transform China from the SF Chronicle. For better and worse, China is changing because of the Olympics. The question will the positives last? I hope the negatives don't.

An interesting quote:

"Competition and the desire to defeat one's peers would have been repugnant in classical China," Johnson said. "So the Olympics are profoundly un-Chinese."

But we are not in classical China, and I would argue since the 1949 revolution there has been many changes in the culture & society in Mainland China.
