In the lifestyles section of our local paper they had one of those sections where they interview locals about current events. Everyone expressed enthusiasm for the Olympics except this guy:
"I don't plan on watching a minute of it. I don't feel like supporting an oppressive communist government that tortures and murders their own citizens. I'd rather not send American dollars to those people."
I'm not saying I approve implicitly of China's Human Rights policy, but reading things like this in the paper help me realize why I love living in rural Utah.
