2012 Olympics: Who are you following?
I'm watching for Troy Nickerson who wrestled for my SiL's brother in high school. He was an awesome high school wrestler, but injuries cost him at Cornell. He has a great shot of making team USA in April.
I will also be following USA fencing pretty close. Mariel Zagunis will be getting a lot of face time as a returning champion in sabre. This will be interesting because she's always been successful being the underdog. Now we'll see how she handles top billing. Seth Kelsey fences my weapon, epee. I really don't like his style very much. It is ugly and effective.
If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you.

On the radio and television, in books, magazines and newspapers, we are incessantly shown how, and told to, kill others, but are never shown how, or told to, kill ourselves. Clearly, we are attracted to homicide and love to hear how to do it, but are repelled by suicide and don't want to hear how to do it. What this tells us about ourselves I leave to the reader to decide.
