For those who saw the opening ceremony...

Do you remember those footprint-shaped fireworks that flashed across the sky during the opening ceremony of the Olympics? As it turns out, they were fake. They were actually computer-generated and added to the final cut before the ceremony, taped several hours earlier, was aired in the U.S. And you remember the excessively-cute little girl who sang the solo during the procession of the Chinese flag? She was actually lip syncing, and it wasn't even her voice on the recording. The little girl who actually sang the song didn't quite have the "cuteness" factor to represent China, it was decided. Some may not be bothered by such things, but I find it disappointing.
