I keep seeing news reports about problems with the Winter Olympics being held in Sochi, Russia.
These stories seem to be growing in their numbers and intensity. Just today, a few of the headlines on The Drudge Report include:
Hotel Horror Stories:
Race to kill all stray dogs before Friday opening…
Cameras in Showers:
One story has to do with the officials demanding people give them their pillows because there are not enough for the athletes. Residents Ordered to Surrender Pillows:
There are many others.
What do you think has gone wrong in Sochi? I’ve seen reports that Russia as spent something like $55 billion to prepare these games but that there has been massive fraud and corruption and that much of that money never got to the site but wound up in the pockets of corrupt officials.
You can see these headlines at The Drudge Report site:
Why would they need people to surrender their pillows? Seems to me that is a very minor need. What would happen if athletes rolled up some towels to use for pillows? What would be the danger?
And who cares that much anyway? After all, it’s only the winter games.
