A very, very blue sky

For anyone with doubts that blue skies actually exist in China, allow the past two weeks to put those to rest:

Beijing will need some luck for the weather to be this nice come Games time, but no more knee-jerk doomsday prognosticating, okay? I'm looking your way, Slate.

That's asking for too much, I realize. If liberal publications stopped criticizing Beijing's air, they may actually have to find some non-trite storylines to write about.

POSTSCRIPT: I'm ashamed I just recently discovered James Reynolds's blog for BBC... he has a fairly balanced take of the situation here.
