I just erased today’s post. Deliberately.
It was about the Olympic Games, whihc officialy open today in Beijing. I discussed the politics of the games, the human rights abuses by China (and other host countries going back to Berlin 1936), the various cheating scandals and a suggestion that perhaps it was time to jettison the Olympic model.
The more I thought about it, the longer the post got. And then I thought, why depress you on a Friday?
So instead a deacde-old cartoon that makes much the same point – but allows you to laugh as well.
