Boycotts beyond Beijing?

From the latest issue of the New Yorker, on the rise of conservative youth nationalism in China and one man’s take on the proposed boycotts of the Beijing Olympics: “Boycotting the Beijing Games in the name of Tibet seemed as logical to him as shunning the Salt Lake City Olympics to protest America’s treatment of the Cherokee.”

Uh, yes. Apparently neither Evan Osnos nor Tang Jie have gotten word of Resist 2010.
