    all i care about is the water in the hotels that seems to be recycled sewage and the mass killing of stray dogs.


    oh, and the hunting and beating of gay people.


    why would we send a contingent over there except to make NBC and corporate America money?


    oh.

    Already, hundreds of animals have been killed, with the local authorities apparently wanting the stray dogs cleared from the streets before Friday’s opening ceremony.

    While the authorities say the dogs can be wild and dangerous, reports of their systematic slaughter by a pest removal company hired by the government in recent months have outraged animal rights advocates and cast a gruesome specter over the traditionally cheery atmosphere of the Games.

    The handling of the matter has also sharply undercut the image of a friendlier, welcoming Russia that President Vladimir V. Putin has sought to cultivate in recent months.

    “We were told, ‘Either you take all the dogs from the Olympic Village or we will shoot them,’ ” said Olga Melnikova, who is coordinating the rescue effort on behalf of a charity called Volnoe Delo (roughly, Good Will), which is financed by Oleg V. Deripaska, one of Russia’s billionaire oligarchs.

    they should use the dogs as part of a new sport . . . tie meat around the necks of the russian hausfraus and make them run in a maze with said stray dogs chasing them... I'd watch that.
