Declaration of an Olympics-Free Zone
Worse, in this country at least, is the way the Olympics are broadcast; all those weird "human interest" pieces about Little Tommy's dead gerbil and how the gerbil's brave but losing fight against the urge to chew its own itty bitty legs inspired Tommy to become the captain of the American curling team.
So, for the duration, I am declaring S@4A.M. an "Olympics-Free Zone" for all who feel as oppressed as I do by the omnipresent, pointless spectacle of the 2008 Summer Games.
There was an article in today's New York Times which suggests that the Chinese literati are also sitting this one out. You can read it here.
