    Should be an interesting couple of weeks in RussiaJust for the
    Putin comments alone.


    “One can feel calm and at ease,” he said. “Just leave kids alone, please.”

    Also, I hope I'm very wrong on this, but I have a feeling something bad is going to happen, in terms of violence. The Russian security doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Ruthless dictatorships usually have the best security though.

    I'm with you, but Armchair makes a good point. I remember being worried about security at Athens.

    True, but ruthless dictatorships also don't reveal every time there's "civil disobedience".

    Happy to sit this one out. Doubt I'll try to get involved again, unless there's another Olympics on (North) American soil.
