god, i'm *so* sick of all the sore losers and the political games going on in the olympics. IMHO, it all started to go downhill when the line between "amateur" and "professional" was intentionally blurred. Dammit, I want more economics students from switzerland winning gold in ski jumping; I want more people like sarah hughes, gracious people who are genuinely thrilled to even *be* at the olympics, let alone win a medal. This whole winning at any cost, or the sense of entitlement that some people have is completely disgusting - it makes me so mad. Where is the thrill of victory if you act like you already deserve to have won before you even compete; like it's owed to you? jerks..and how about that stupid woman bobsledder? serves her right that she lost; screwing people over left and right...

I think that people really need to remember that being a champion is about a lot more than just winning at any cost.

feh...

"Man has no nobler function than to defend the truth." - Ruth McKenney

but who knows whether or not the truth you're defending is *the* truth, or just someone's else's version of the truth that you got suckered you into believing? does it matter?

does that mean that attorneys are the most noble of all of us?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I bet Ruth McKenney was an attorney...
