  1. Russian President Vladimir Putin just signed a law banning everything from public displays of same-sex affection to rainbow symbols – even allowing the government to arrest gay or pro-gay foreigners. Given America's evolution on marriage equality and gay rights, should the US boycott the Winter Olympics in Russia? If so, should the European Union boycott the Olympics to be held in Russia as well? Personally I can see the two sides of this issue: the free thinking, open-minded, gay rights supporters' views and the views of the athletes- the general purpose of the Olympics. I would love to read everyone's thoughts on this before I decide for myself, since this could affect a lot more people than just myself.
  2. Wrestling (AKA Greco Roman wrestling) has been voted out of the Olympics starting 2020. I had trouble following the details of the procedure, but the decision isn't final yet. It doesn't look good, though, as 7 sports compete for one available spot. Most of the rationale comes apparently from the voters being concerned for revenue and loyalty to 'their' sport. Wrestling is one of the original olympic sports. Next to running, it's probably the most primal. It seems ridiculous that golf is voted into the olympics with racewalking at the same time wrestling is removed. As one writer at CNN put it, 'Hercules wept.' I suspect that in the end wrestling won't get cut because the cries of 'you sold out' will be much too bad PR for them. They value their false image of non-corporate, pure-sport event too much to let spark a controversy. Better by far for them to drop wushu, wakeboarding and baseball which won't draw such fire.
