London Olympics 2012

Raphaela and I started watching recaps of the Olympic events, and Raphaela fell under the enchantment of the gymnastics; she now throws herself off furniture and lifts her legs into the air, and says she is "flying."  It is a pleasure to watch her, and I actually feel that same way about the diving competition.

So far the Israelis have not made it into medal contention, but here's hoping that at least one out of the 38 delegates can bring it home.

By the way, London Olympic planners and the IOC, you can include in your ceremony a minute of silence for the dead in two World Wars, as well as 52 British civilians who died in 2005...for f**k sake, you can get the Queen to jump out of a helicopter...but you can't acknowledge the 40th anniversary of the murder of the Munich 11?!
