Well first I must be entirely candid. Sports just aren’t my thing, so my boycotting the summer Olympics is low cost to me personally!
Second, Bejing? Come’on. This IS THE HUMAN FUTURE blog on the inviolability of all human life.
Here’s a litany of human rights abuses in the London Telegraph today. Things like imprisonment without a trial, arresting people for disturbing the social harmony and the death penalty given out for even some “non-violent” crimes.
And now, warnings and concerns out of Germany over possible Gene doping at the games to enhance performance.
I’ll find something else to do with my time this summer!
