The Torch Relay Nonesense

As I watch the Giants' go down after blowing a 2-1 lead, I figure now is a good time to put my thoughts down about the Olympic Torch.

Here's my thought: how about protesting but not extinguishing the damn flame. Yes, the PRC is a despicable regime who oppresses a number of minorities as a matter of policy. Yes, they make Texas look like a judicial system that sparingly uses the death penalty. But simply because the Olympics are being held there does not mean that the world has approved of what China is doing.

We do that every day here in the United States by investing money there so that we can get our [insert product] cheaper.
