The United States Masked Marauders

California Correspondent August 5, 2008 0

With the Olympics starting in just a few days, US cyclicsts have been spotted rolling into Beijing sporting specially designed surgical-type masks to protect them from the air pollution.

These masks raise three questions for me:

– Don’t the masks bring back fears of SARS for the locals?

– What do Chinese bank robbers wear?

– And finally, haven’t these athletes ever trained in Los Angeles?

Hat tip to the Grey Lady for the story.
