AND I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE IGNORING THE OLYMPICS: “Two weeks after announcing they had sold every one of the record 6.8 million tickets offered for the Games, Olympics officials expressed dismay at the large numbers of empty seats at nearly every event and the lack of pedestrian traffic throughout the park, the 2,800-acre centerpiece of the competition.” I’m not watching on TV, either, and at least then I don’t have to worry about having my laptop infected with spyware. But don’t worry: “To remedy the problem, officials are busing in teams of state-trained ‘cheer squads’ identifiable by their bright yellow T-shirts to help fill the empty seats and improve the atmosphere.”
