Power and Influence

The mighty voice of me gets resultishness:
Mayor Gregor Robertson has joined the chorus of voices asking VANOC to free the flame.

At a press conference Tuesday, Robertson said the city has taken a number of calls from residents who are disappointed the Olympic flame is blocked behind fences in Coal Harbour.

He says he has called VANOC CEO John Furlong to “express concerns.”

You don't understand. Those chain link fences are made of multiple interlocking Olympic rings.

Give me flame, lots of flame
and the shiny rings above
Don't fence me in.
Let me praise Olympic myths
And fat, old men who are rich
Don't fence me in.

I know you crazy folks in topsy-turvy land have spring in the fall and so forth, but fencing is in the SUMMER games, Kiwi.

Yeah, well look at it this way.

You have been attacked on a flight (yet) by some shadowy hoser.

Another Kiwi said...

Fencing all year tigris, keeping the sheeps in.

Well, duh, if the flame weren't fenced it, it could set fire to all the coal in the harbour.

It's like, science, and shit.
