Olympic Torch

I always wondered what they would do if this happened:

Passing through Paris under armed guard, the torch was extinguished several times, and police officers moved it aboard a bus to protect it as demonstrators swarmed the security detail.

I'm kind of sad that the response was so pedestrian. I always sort of hoped that they would go back to Athens to get a new flame. I mean, what's the point of running the torch round the world if it's not even the same flame you got from Athens? [Max pointedly ignores the ghost of Heraclitus hovering over his left shoulder.]


"The presentation or 'gift' of the Holy Ghost simply confers upon a man the right to receive at any time, when he is worthy of it and desires it, the power and light of truth of the Holy Ghost, although he may often be left to his own spirit and judgment." --Joseph F. Smith (manual, p. 69)

Be pretty if you are,
Be witty if you can,
But be cheerful if it kills you.
