Meanwhile, In Osaka

Just now, at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Osaka, China National Champion Song Nan skated a vibrant short program. The crowd clapped along in time to the Middle Eastern music, the only time the crowd has engaged itselt in a performance tonight. When Song finished, rising up from the ice with his fists raised, the crowd responded, giving him a standing ovation -- the first of the evening.

The common run of inhabitants of this blessed land know how to behave.
