Coverage is one thing and eyewitness reports are another. One of MPR's Public Insight Analysts, Melody Ng, is in Beijing on vacation and sent back a trip report. Ng documents what it is like to be in the city, among the people - instead of the athletes - whether she's talking with volunteers, dealing with rude people, or celebrating honest cab drivers. This is the Olympics story I want to read, and you may too. you can even comment on her experiences. Bob Collins has both the text and slideshow on News Cut.
