As Beijing prepares to host the 2008 Olympic Games, it is making plans to clean up the city. Specifically it will try to eliminate drugs, prostitution and under-aged drinking in city bars and dance halls.
Venues will be rated A, B, or C following joint inspections carried out by city police, commerce and cultural authorities.
Vice police chief He Angang said:
"By the 2008 Olympic Games, the city's entertainment spots will be drug free, that is our goal."
If the Chinese manage this feat, they should tell the secret of their success to the rest of the world.
Oddly, the new rules will not affect bath houses and massage parlors.
