(off topic) Olympic Opening Ceremony --

Wow! These were spectacular! I certainly don't agree with a lot of China's policies, but the artistic portion of the Olympic opening ceremonies was easily the finest I have ever seen. The visual charm of it was riveting.

If you haven't seen them yet (we got them live here in Canada), I urge you to watch them.

I agree - it was a fantastic show! I spent the afternoon watching it on the BBC, and it's one of the most impressive things I've seen in a while.

And now don't you feel somewhat cheated to find out that the little girl was miming to another singer because she was cuter?

Or that the fireworks seen were in part pre-recorded and some added digitally?

China, as I expected, is playing a games of smoke and mirrors.

If the Chinese would stoop sooo low in he opening ceremony, what faith can we have that their athelets won't cheat.

Why bother any more, the athletics are not the important factor any more.
