This and That

I was pleased that the Kansas Jayhawks won last night's college basketball championship game. I spent my high school years in eastern Kansas, which is very much K.U. territory, and had a number of friends who went there.

Can you believe all of the protests along the route of the Olympic torch as it passed through London and Paris the last couple of days? It's nice that people are free to protest, but sadly, they won't accomplish anything: China will continue to oppress Tibet and support genocide in Darfur. Today, the torch goes to San Francisco, which is a major center for political protesters. It should be interesting to see what happens when they meet up with the Chinese "Smurfs" who are "protecting" the Olympic torch as it wends its way toward Beijing. For once, my sympathies are with the protesters, mainly because they're opposing something worse than they are.
