Happy Children’s Day! Yes, because children are often unduly neglected in China. We’re celebrating the occasion by alerting you to video and pics of Wen Jiabao in a very fetching PE kit hooping it up at Shibalidian primary school in Beijing’s Chaoyang district.
Grandpa Wen promised former Olympic speed-skating champion Yang Yang that he would promote physical education for children by taking part in a PE class, and schooled sixth-grade chumps with his harmonious dribble-drives yesterday. Though the hoops were lowered considerably, we’re sure the point about getting an hour of exercise every day was made.
We only hope that Obama’s people see this, and arrange a one-on one game to 11, for all the marbles. Maybe even carbon emissions caps finally gets solved.
