On the last (I promise) whiney note: I am checking this site every day. I intend to bombard AT&T with requests! That's enough, already.
Canada intends for the Olympics' opening ceremonies to appeal on an emotional level, quoth a representative Canadian on the Today Show. Hah! Good spin on not being able to muster as large a spectacle as China had done.
I am willing to be emotionally appealed to instead of astounded. I just hope they have enough snow. Amazing that the US wishes it could export some of the monster snowfall some states received this month, and Vancouver's is less.
