Kenneth Brannaugh read something from "The Tempest" and then you saw him wondering around, was there a purpose in his wondering? Was he supposed to be an observer of the Industrial Revolution? I kept thinking he looked like Abraham Lincoln without his beard.
Watching the competitions this AM I noticed commercial breaks have been cut back, some what, they are still way too frequent, usually occurring after eight or nine minutes and they're wasting about 2 minutes of time. How much time will I spend in front of the TV? Not very much. While I find the Olympics entertaining, I don't share the addiction so many others seem to have. I don't need to win every competition to pet my ego.
