The Olympics have begun, preempting all my favorite TV vices (about three of them), and of course, the left just had to make it into an eye-rolling political clown show! I remember as a kid who was new to this country, watching the Olympics for the first time in 1984, and being so proud of my adopted country! It was my first summer Olympic games as a US resident, and it was a joy to watch our athlete superstars like Mary Lou Retton, Carl Lewis, Bart Conner, Tim Daggett, and Mitch Gaylord. I knew the names of all our gymnasts by heart. My pride knew no bounds.
