Afraid that protests might disrupt the Olympic torch relay, San Francisco and Olympic organizers changed the route at the last second, leaving protestors and supporters staring at empty streets. Wow. What a farce. Whatâ€™s the point of even having the relay if itâ€™s going to be mainly hidden from view?
Much like Chinaâ€™s treatment of dissidents and unwanteds, the Olympic torch relay is now being hidden behind a veil of secrecy. Itâ€™s a shame San Francisco felt the need to be a part of that. Maybe they felt they didn’t have a choice but I think cowardice played a big role here.
