    But my view of the Olympics as some sort of "Kumbaya" moment for the world is rather jaded, so my feelings about, for example,  what Putin does or does not gain from them are waning in importance.

    I view the Olympics now as little more than corporate commercials, as far as our country's participation is concerned.  I have a similar attitude rapidly developing towards all professional sports.

    What irks me the most is seeing corporations twisting to find a rationale to support obvious and dangerous bigotry.  Which is something I am not proud of my country to be supporting, even tacitlly.
