    adopt the rainbow flag colors.  How is that not apparent to the eye?  

    I would encourage everyone to boycott these olympics and its sponsors.  You can catch all of the flubs and any expressions of solidarity from other sources.  Just watch the clips.  

    The Russian controversy over gay rights can be a turning point for how the olympics deal with human rights.  We need to make it the new normal that countries that violate the human rights of any group shall be disqualified from hosting the games.  I think that would be a great change.  In order to ensure this occurs, we must boycott these games.  A boycott sends a message to Russia regarding its anti-gay laws and to the IOC and world that this kind of governmental action is contrary to the principles on which the games are based.
