Another day, another doppelganger.
But they also get a lot of glory!
These names embody strength.

Refugees will march in the opening ceremonies behind the Olympic flag.
My family had a serious case of Olympic fever. Along with many Canadians, the winter games have become a permanent fixture on our television screen, and a major topic of discussion around the dinner table. The Olympics present valuable learning opportunities for adults and children of all ages. Parents can use these great learning opportunities to foster "a gold medal attitude" for children.
This isn't about whether or not Marion Bartoli is attractive, this is about the fact that it just shouldn't matter. She won at Wimbledon! I'm disgusted that there's more discussion going on about where she ranks on the "sexy meter" than any of her matches.
It's been called the Games for everybody. But, this is not true. Women are not equal to men in the Olympics, and it needs to be fixed. It can't be lied about, or glorified for what it isn't. The Olympics are not equal, and to insist they are is insulting to equality and women. We've made strides, but not enough. If it's only a good start, then it should only be reported as a good start.

NBC has continued to delay all of their Olympic coverage so far -- the opening ceremonies, Michael Phelps' race. Do they not know about the Internet? In only three days, NBC has single-handedly shown all of us why folks are turning off their TVs and turning on their computers. They wonder why their ratings are dropping and why the money is fleeing. Maybe they should watch their own shows.
