Plaske, you don't speak for me. Not everyone in America thinks every athlete is on drugs. Get a grip!! Shameful. AND - You are NOT a corespondent! You are a - and note the quotes - "journalist"! PLEASE, no more video!!

Mr. Plaschke,

I've watched a couple of your videos, and I find them extremely stupid and demeaning! So what the Chinese feel proud of Liu Xiang?! He represent a sport spirit and hard work for the Chinese, it is sad for them to seeing him injured, meanwhile it is very low of you to mock their reactions. Shame on you.

You seem to dislike the country, the city, the people and find some of the events boring, why don't you go home and eat a couple more burgers and steaks?! And please stop making LA times and the US look like a fool. THANKS.
