Olympic flame extinguished...

...during a tussle in Paris. Does this mean bad luck for the Olympics, I wonder?

I don't know why they chose Beijing in the first place. Yes, China is a world power, and the interests of multinationals underbuilding the Olympic Games cannot be ignored (God forbid). But c'mon, you knew holding the Olympics in China was going to ruffle some Tibetan and other feathers. It's tantamount to basically condoning the occupation of Tibet by China.

*shakes head*
