A friend of mine went to Vancouver last week for the Winter Olympics. It was one of those spontaneous, jump-on-a-plane kind of things.

I e-mailed him to ask how it went.

“I didn’t actually buy a ticket to anything," he replied. "Just hung around in the bars in Olympic Village and watched curling. (What a sport!)."

He also provided an interesting assessment of the atmosphere. I apologize that only active Catholics under age 45 or so might get this:

“Kinduv like World Youth Day for secular white people.”
