Big Fat Greek Meddling

I don't really, you know, care about the Olympics. Unless somebody's clubbed somebody else in the knee, I never have. But I watched the Opening Ceremony this year, and I have to hand it to the Greeks - it was a beautifully designed and choreographed affair - or it would have been, if Bob Costas and Katie Couric weren't commenting inanely over the whole thing. Most annoying was their incessant chatter over Bjork's performance - the main reason I tuned in at all. Hell, I like Katie as much as any red-blooded American has to (she's almost literally the girl next door, hailing from my home town) - but shut up, already!

Still, more artistically satisfying than Troy.
