No nation should boycott. OTOH, the Russians should be forbidden to compete.

Well if they fail to win gold, there will be outrage in the Duma, or whatever they call their kangaroo legislature. And yet it doesn't look like they are going to win much.

I don't doubt it was calculated, but the Olympics is incidental, just a way of driving home the political point more forcefully -- nothing to do with medals.

Now, they're saying that there may not be enough snow for the ski events. They stored some snow from last winter and they have snow machines. Will it be enough?

Time to switch all ski events to Lillehammer, Norway.
