I Agree. My earlier comment was on the presentation by Danny Boyle and the volunteers who performed in the ceremonies. NBC’s part was absolutely maddening. I don’t want to hear some guy they hired talking about an old hymn that the children are singing. I want to hear the children singing the old hymn. NBC said that they tailored their presentation of the ceremonies to the American people. I suppose that is a comment on us and is very offensive. And don’t get me started on their “censorship” of the tribute to the two dead U.S. servicemen and the requiem for the victims of the 7/7 terror attacks; a detail I heard on NPR the day after I posted my original message. Ryan Seacrest,… Really! Well, please let me join you on your soapbox. I’m hoping there’s enough air for both of us. But I don’t understand how the song “Concerning Hobbits” indicates that the Olympics are evil. Perhaps I’m missing something but I am interested.
