A look at the Olympics

[SEPT. 26, 2000]  People who've known me for a while know that keeping up with what's going on in the world isn't my strong point. That might be amusing in view of the fact that I've been employed by news-reporting organizations for most of my working life which is also part of the explanation, because Im usually focused on everyday details that need to be taken care of behind the scenes no matter what the actual events are in the outside world. With that background, it's not altogether surprising that I didn't realize the Sydney Olympics had begun until the opening ceremonies were mentioned in a Sunday sermon a couple of days later.
