btw: from the USA Today live blog of the opening ceremonies, happening now;
“”MAYBE MITT WAS ON TO SOMETHING” (8:06 p.m. London/3:06 p.m. ET): At London’s historic Trafalgar Square, crowds gathered more than an hour before opening ceremonies only to be told that there would be no big screen to view the show as previously advertised, reports USA TODAY’s Kevin Johnson. Money quote, from fan Leela Marshall:”
Mitt might very well be right, but that’s not the point. You don’t always have to say what’s on your mind, especially if you are in no position to do anything about it. And even if people agree with you, they tend to resent you if you go to their country and criticize them.
