Beijing has 37 venues (12 permanent, 11 existing, 8 temporary, 6 located outside the city), an olympic village, a third airport terminal, 8 subway lines, and an improvement to the Central Business District for the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Whatever they are planning, i just hope Zhangyimou wont embarrass us big time like he did in athenes.
What does the word country mean figuratively?(outside its offical meanings)
Is it just an abstract tool of politians to govern the people?
A concept that human grasp to find goals and self value in life perhaps?

Is loyalty always a virtue?
Is there absolute justice?

Moral of all this- don't read Shakespear, screw up your brain.
