Congratulations To Protestors Who Disrupted Olympic Torch Ceremony

  

Congratulations to the protesters who disrupted the torch lighting ceremony in Athens for the Beijing Olympic games.

Here is a story about the protests

Update 4/8/08Here is a story about further protests against the torch run. Protestors forced the torch to be extinguished in Paris.

Above you see the Reporters Without Borders Olympic handcuff flag. Click here to learn more about Reporters Without Borders. 

The immediate cause of the protest was the Chinese denial of freedom in Tibet. 

In addition to Tibet, the Chinese goverment denies political freedom to more than one billion people who live in China.

The Summer Olympics were held in Nazi Germany in 1936 and in the Soviet Union in 1980.    

Here is the story about the torch lighting ceremony on the official web page of the U.S Olympic team. No mention is made here of the disruption. 

How can our U.S. Olympic team represent American values when it ignores people fighting for freedom?

You Can Tip The Person Who Helps You At The Dunkin’ Donuts

You can tip the person who helps you at the Dunkin’ Donuts.

( Above is my local Dunkin’ Donuts. I think it is an older store. )

You can tip at any place you feel you’ve received good service and you figure the staff is not paid very much.

Take this morning for example.

I ordered one dozen doughnuts, two cups of coffee, and a cup of tea from the Dunkin’ Donuts. ( I was hungry and thirsty.) 

The young lady who helped me was on the ball so I tipped her.

There you have it.

Here is a history of doughnuts.
