I would like to say a word about the difference between summer and winter. In summer a swimming pool is constant; it never suffers from ice or slush; it never suffers from fog or a white out. It is a constant, not a variable. In winter a slalom course, or a downhill course, is one big variable. Especially in Vancouver where the snow is so bad. It is not simply a question of talent; it is more the luck of the draw, and the International Olympic Committee is perfectly content with this. And with other discrepancies. I just want to thank all the winter olympic skiers who must deal with the random variable which is the "ski course" and deal with it with uncanny skill. They deserve more than gold, silver, or bronze. They deserve a purple heart.
