    As a huge sports fan I always enjoy the Olympics. I was just watching a segment (on Peacock streaming) about the US women's softball team. One young lady said she receives communications thanking her for being a positive role model because she and the writer were of Asian descent. The personal stories add so much.

    I know that Tokyo was awarded the 2020 Olympics but I don't know why Tokyo 2020 is shown everywhere. It seems like the fact that an unusual circumstance happened that caused the postponement but 99.999 % of the world is aware of the circumstances and the actual Tokyo 2021 would be appropriate. Obviously this is not too important but I am a little confused why the actual year isn't shown.

    4 new sports were added this year. Skateboarding, Surfing and Rock climbing (interesting) are the ones I recall. It's nice to evolve to include more events which has to improve viewer numbers.

    There were many who were protesting about the games because the Covid threat. It is very surprising that a country with plenty of money didn't prioritize getting a much larger portion of their citizens vaccinated before the opening ceremonies.

    Best of luck to all athletes and their countries as they compete which is personally important to themselves and entertaining to the majority of us.

    Those who just don't want to be vaccinated. About 10 days ago a large number of people were let go from a group who provided healthcare. A higher state of common sense won over. Do individuals have the right to make their own choices ? Absolutely. However they can't be allowed to infect those they're supposed to be giving safe care to.

    College football resumes in about 40 days. It's an activity that earns huge revenue ( billions ) for a group of many universities. Again you have individuals who don't want to be vaccinated. If 90+ % are vaccinated there's still an important risk factor. While admittedly it's very low chances vaccinated people are sometimes infected. No chance of death and more subtle negative effects. It makes you wonder when the ideas of a few can effect the progression of the majority. Covid wrecked the attempt at normalcy 12 months ago. Will it be a fly in the Chardonnay this year ? Time will tell.

    We were in a position to win the National Championship until Bobby Joe, Tom and Bill got sick and infected 5 others including 2 coaches.

    I don't like exclusion but the bigger picture has to be the focus nationwide. It can be avoided.

    Immigration is America. Everything in moderation though. Try to make the problems in Central America less horrible and maybe the numbers will lessen. Pay here or pay there.

    The first felony sentence was given today. It was approx. 8 months in jail. Perhaps I am delusional but I think they're all going to get soft penalties in the name of bringing a divided country together. That too makes me crazy. If you didn't cause the damage... You shouldn't be given the task of correcting it. Be soft on the Republican base and see how they feel about you then. They will hate every atom of your being because they don't think, they hate with faithful allegiance. The fool carrying the vile Confederate flag around could have gotten 10 years in jail and I wouldn't have lost one moment of sleep.

    Responsibility for your actions and words along with accountability should be important and should be untouched by political spin.

    Jan 6 was a pathetic act by a spoiled brat who refused to accept that he wasn't the country's first choice. We shouldn't hide or downplay the importance of the crazy actions by loyal followers. It was despicable.

    The current variant and the next 3 are pointing to one specific segment. That's right, bone headed and stubborn individuals who know what's right but refuse to do what's in their best interests. Please remind me to feel sorry for them as they struggle. Self inflicted wounds.

    I have friends and family visiting. My son, his wife and 4 kids have an escalade (out of state tag) they rented which is both expensive and nearly impossible to find. Luckily it was reserved well in advance. Our friends are two well paid professionals who simply saw the huge prices and said NO. They are having friends and family take them where needed. Supply and demand at work.

    Guilty as hell - He and they have always been. History will look very unfavorably upon the whole twisted mess. Hopefully the actions taken will be both to punish the guilty and make it apparent that lying stealing and constantly cheating won't be tolerated, even if you're white and once had some money.

    When DT speaks to his father in remembrance, I wonder if he has anything at all to say. Witch hunt I tell you. Well it worked before.

    Dock, I certainly wish you well. You're simply on your path to where you're supposed to be. We hold you in high regard.

    I love PBS documentaries about: everything. Take good care

    Ghost town most days and usually not much after 6:00 pm. It is what it is
