Olympics mostly quite wonderful
Despite my complaint in the previous post -- and I think it's a valid complaint; I wonder if others will see what I saw -- I have generally enjoyed the competition. As this Register editorial notes, the Canadians for the most part have handled the situation very well -- although not having the ice properly prepared for today's 500m short-skate event was a major amateurish blunder. And BodeMiller -- who is judged by the clock rather than a panel of, shall we say, imperfect judges -- got a bronze in the downhill. Good for him.
