Shutdowns ahead of the Olympics

I'm glad most of our manufacturing and suppliers are down south. From ACF China:

Everyone knows the Olympics is causing major headaches for anyone in or planning to come to China during these past and next few months. From Visa cancellations to the sudden demolition of warehouses (as a result of last minute beautification campaigns) to unannounced restrictions on transport (to curb pollution) - its all headaches! Some of our own suppliers from the more “sensitive” regions in China have been “deported” back home for “security reasons.” Even our French intern will return to France early since his visa cannot be extended.
