Waiting for shuttle

by Terry 4/10/2008 7:14:00 AM
I am in the waiting area at the car dealer waiting for a shuttle to take me to the office. I mostly work from home, so going into the office is not the normal activity for me. I hate paying for the car service. The two combine is agony at times. At least there is internet access and I can get the news, check my work email and collect my thoughts. I reluctantly have to admit that having the dealer work on my car is about a wash on costs. I have to consider my time, convenience, the drop-off shuttle and such. As a youth and young adult I would have done the work my self, but this is not cost effective with modern cars and my time value. It is still agonizing.

The Olympic Torch has become the symbol of protest. I am somewhat saddened by this. I am just old enough to recall the emotions about the '72 Olympics in Munich, but for most of my life the Olympics have been more about sport and I had ignored the politics. It has always been a political event, I realize. Still, the torch, athletes and the competition to me are the sacred elements. Protest and complain about anything else, but leave the spirit of the games un bothered. Of course, the '84 Olympics missed a whole group of athletes.
