I am a fan of the olympics, but this time around I was going to boycott watching them due to the inhumane practices of the Chinese government. (Yes, our government is inhumane too). But... I was checking out the topiary garden they have built for the games and I must admit it is pretty awesome. I have to remember that many of the athletes have trained most of their lives for this opportunity. They are the stars and I shouldn\'t let may half brained ideals on politics get in the way of admiring these athletes achievements. What are other people thinking about this topic?

Aequitas

My goodness those are incredible.

About the Olympics I agree that the Chinese government shouldn\'t get in the way of the athletes\' experience. They work hard for the Olympics, and we shouldn\'t protest the Olympics for another groups mistake. I think (and hope) the Olympics will run smoothly and work out like past years.
Respect.
