What do “Lord of the Rings” and the Beijing Olympics have in common? After several excrutiating and turbulent weeks, the Olympic torch has finally made it to Hong Kong. As it has all along its torturous trail, the torch brought with it the same ugliness engineered by the Chinese government and its minions that led to violence and deprivation of freedoms in England, France, San Francisco and elsewhere around the globe.
When it’s all over, the Chinese government and its Legions of Dumb might be similarly driven to cast the cursed flame-in-a-box into the infernal depths of Hell. Or better yet, jump in with it.
