    Beavis and Butthead last night that would be deemed offensive by a large group of people. Don't know why only the lack of a moment of silence for the Munich 11 is the only thing that's the subject of outrage.

    TBH, as a Jew (albeit, a secular Atheist one who does not blindly support Israel), the lack of a moment of silence doesn't bother me. How about a moment of silence for the 9/11 victims. Atlanta Centennial Olympic Park bombing? If you're going to have a moment of silence for every Olympic related tragedy or terrorist attack, the Opening Ceremony would still be going on right now.

    They should just have a moment of silence at the beginning of every opening ceremony for anyone who has ever died at the Olympics. That way, it covers the Munich 11, the Georgian luger who died in Vancouver, the Atlanta victims, and all the brain cells across America that died when Matt Lauer asked Bob Costas about the g-spot.
