sorry….not the song indicating evilness of the Olympics, but the visual imagery of the forging of the Olympic ring being very very similar to the forging of the One Ring, which the One Ring symbolizes evil. I personally am so so tired of things in general being dumbed down for the majority (NBC insultingly "tailoring this to the American people") because that only leads in one direction: down. Granted, going back over different posts here, etc, I realize that I can be pretty dumb, myself, but in general people are a lot more intelligent than they are given credit for. This is the main reason why I just cannot listen for more than maybe 5 minutes at a time to morning "news" shows. What really sucks is that NBC has exclusive rights to Olympic television broadcasting --for the US at least-- into perpetuity so I see no remedy. Maybe watching Telemundo? might be funĀ  ;Dnow what was the tribute to the US servicemen? I have not heard anything about that from any source and I agree that's shameful if it was cut.
