Dustinland — Olympic Trials

All week long I was planning on making this week’s Dustinland a big long rant against the Olympics being held in China. I wasn’t going to watch any of it either — as a protest. Well, I talked to some people and thought about it some more and, well, you see where I ended up. I still think it’s pretty messed up that the games are being held in China, but hey, I guess they’re not that much more messed up than we are. Man, it’s a sad world. We’ve got the whole world celebrating a fascist nation, Russia just started an oil war in Georgia, and we’re still fighting one in Iraq. But hey, go Michael Phelps! Go Redeem Team! Let’s just focus on the gold and forget about all that bad stuff and all those dead Tibetans. Things will be fine. Just fine.
