That limit on entering events is probably a good idea, but I bet it would have very little effect overall. I doubt there are more than a handful of people, and probably only from larger countries, that it could apply to. But it also might mean limiting a country’s ability to win medals. So I dunno.
Of course it would only have a small effect, but it would give a chance to a few more people who have spent their entire young lives training for a moment that only comes every 4 years.
Is there anything currently showing new episodes on prime time? I thought that wouldn’t be happening for a month or so.
You could be right. I don’t watch the local networks’ prime time lineups. But I assumed that things were different this year because of the writers strike and also because I watch Monk and Psych on USA Network and they have been airing new episodes for over a month now.
I dare anyone to guess where the next “hit” is going to be. Mostly because if you turn out to be right, there will be several armor-clad people knocking down your door a few minutes later asking you (with the aid of a large rubber hose) how you knew where the attack would come. Call me crazy, but THAT would make me laugh.
Granted BET ain’t ABC, cBS, or NBC, but they made a decision based on the bottom line…
or the viewership line.Â Which due to advertising works out to about the same thing.
What? They don’t want to edgykate de bros about the evils of W, Republicans, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice and Clarence Thomas??
I seem to recall one or more of the major networks going through financial struggles and having to cut the budget so the news wasn’t such a drag on the bottom line$$$$.
And now we may soon have Perky Katie Kouric(sp?) taking the anchor news_reader_ chair @ one network and the Survivor Celebrity Newstarget(who was set up for an assassination attempt by his own network) taking another news_reader_ chair.
More big money to a losing cause.
Just like Leno($14M/year) and Letterman($17M/year.)
