The People's Republic of Helpful.
"It starts out proclaiming China to be ruled by law, but beyond that, it actually is quite helpful on the legal dos and don'ts for foreigners in China." Via Dan Harris at China Law Blog, see this English translation of mainland China's "Legal Guidelines for Foreigners" for entering, exiting and staying in China during the Olympics. A 13-page white paper of mainly true stuff. There's even short sections on how the government will deal with drunks and guns--presumably in case a U.S.-style firefight involving Texans breaks out during the Parade of Nations.
