Quote of The Week
The Olympic torch was lit at Olympia in Greece today. Nice tableau; shame about the message. Two pro-Tibet activists managed to break through a cordon of 1,000 police officers to wave a flag at China's envoy, but were swiftly removed. Jacques Rogge - President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) - told Associated Press news agency that he was engaged on a daily basis in "silent diplomacy" with Beijing on Tibet and other human rights issues. That's political speak for keeping one's mouth shut. Hi, Jacques. Keep it up. You could win the Coxsoft Art Twit of the Year Award.
