"Kim Rhode of U.S. Takes Gold in Women's Skeet, Setting Records" Congratulations to her.
I did not watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony. I did see about 30 seconds of it, when the British (English?) comedian Rowan Atkinson was making faces while playing the piano. I thought this was dumb, and I don't know why anyone finds him funny. To each, his own; I suppose.
I shall henceforth ignore as much of the Olympics as possible. I will only say: despite our continuing reduction in greatness as a country, I hope that the United States wins every event.
