What You Will

Another Burma Shave billboard on the information superhighway. Random thoughts about arts, faith, culture, music, language, literature, and the shortcomings of the Hegelian dialectic. (OK, just kidding about that last bit.)

I wonder what goes in this space?


Olympiad? Too bad, so sad

With the world once again in the throes of Olympic-mania, it might be time to revisit my experience during the Athens Olympics. It was only four years ago, but seems like another lifetime. That's what parenthood will do to you.

In case you're curious, it does appear that Q, my Athens nemesis, has in fact taken a group of some kind to Beijing. Details are beyond sketchy, but the phrase "See you in Beijing" has appeared on one of his Web sites.

Here's hoping that Q's lack of judgment, planning skills, and leadership ability doesn't lead to serious consequences for anyone on the trip. I imagine that in a Communist country there is much less margin for error and tomfoolery.
