Olympics Puzzle

Apparently, Steven Spielberg has decided not to participate in the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing... what event was he entering? Shark wrestling?

Oh, as artistic adviser. He's citing the lack of progress in ending the genocide in Darfur, which he feels the Chinese government could do more to end given its influence in the region.

Really Heavy Greatcoat cartoonThe way Variety presented the first line of that news story is almost as confusing as going to the post office yesterday and asking to send something first class and being told the Post Office also offered a (three times as expensive) guaranteed next day delivery...

Excuse me? isn't that what the first class is supposed to be?

I feel a Victor Meldrew day coming on.
