i never imagined i would be sorry with the olympics. this, though, is beyond shame. about the policing of the entire set of pre-monsoon weather windows, the non-allowance of all other climbers on any higher reaches while the 'torch' was being taken up by an 'assault' team, of the great 'mountaineering' at evidence in the effort, i don't want to say.

in any case, one won't find anything save the most wide-mouthed smiles here. i recall tacitus citing calgacus of caledonia: they create a desolation and call it peace.

today is a sad day for sport.

i am, of course, a very industrious person. so i was reading my old blind man, as usual, and cleaning up my stuff, as usual. when i read this.
i think i would much much rather be like the old blind man -- messed up though that may be, because of how bull-headed one may be in certain things and spend one's life urging those things -- than a good critic of the old blind man.
