Least Shocking News of the Day

If you watched even five minutes of women’s gymnastics during the Beijing Olympics, then an age-faking scandal in China will be about as surprising as the next sunrise. Indeed, in advance of the Asian Games, Chinese officials have “discovered” that roughly 20% of the country’s young athletes claim to be older than they are.

A cynic might say that it’s convenient for the Chinese to have their “come to Jesus” moment after their triumphant Summer Games and after anyone with a functioning eyeball had already figured it out. No cynics here, though.
