I found it sad, knowing that people like Muhammad Ali are there, to read that people went wild over Hillary Clinton's "star power." I was more than sad -- horrified was more like it -- to learn that one of the other people in Singapore to lobby for NYC to host the Olympics is Henry Kissinger. I guess it's one of the few places outside of the USA he can still visit without risk of arrest.
I don't want the Olympics here, and obviously no thinking person does either if they have that man representing us. I agree with Todd Gibson on what hosting them would mean:
a month of lockdown and police-state presence in 2012 that will make last summer's Republican Convention look like a fire drill.
