Olympic Fun

Since I missed all the Olympics while in Korea I found this piece to be quite a laugh.

Years ago at an international peace conference in Greece I learned that the Olympics were originally founded as a disarmament policy.  Each year the winner of the Greek city-state games had to go home and tear down the walls surrounding their city.

Wouldn't it be great if the cumulative winner of the Olympics these days had to go home and totally disarm!?  If that was the case the US likely wouldn't be spending alot of time and energy trying to get Russia banned from the games.
