human rights abuses, pollution and slime don't keep you from visiting or supporting the 2008 Olympics in Peking (Beijing for appeasers with double jointed tongues), this news ought to help make up your mind: "Beijing has asked hotels and restaurants in the city to take dog meat off the menu for the duration of next month's Olympics."
No dog meat? Why bother to travel to the other side of the Earth only to have succulent dog meat unavailable? What will be next, no chopsticks?
Not all the Chinese Olympics culinary news is bad. The ever-popular donkey meat will remain on the Olympic restaurant menus. (Don't look in the Feed Trough if you are squeamish.)
