For those of you who want some light relief from the Games, here's a site that thumbs its nose at the Olympics.<P> <A HREF="http://www.silly2000.com/default.asp" TARGET=_blank>http://www.silly2000.com/default.asp</A> <P><BR>The standard is rather variable, but this 'profile' of Olympic Village Mayor Graham Richardson<BR>has its moments:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>As Mayor of the Olympic Village, Richo hopes to emulate the finest qualities of Australian local government. These include catering to special interests, disregard for the wishes of the general public and susceptibility to corruption. “I feel like I’ve been preparing for this role all my life” says the new Mayor.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P> <A HREF="http://www.silly2000.com/show_story.asp?ID=216&ED=26&CAT=2&NAME=richo" TARGET=_blank>http://www.silly2000.com/show_story.asp?ID=216&ED=26&CAT=2&NAME=richo</A> <P>And, bitter twisted soul that I am, I rather enjoyed the front page headline:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The reason that several Australian athletes expected to win gold medals have finished with silver or bronze medals instead has finally been revealed. Several athletes have admitted that they threw their finals to avoid being forced into close contact with Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Howard has been stalking successful Australian athletes during the Olympics seeking to ruin coverage of their moments of glory with his presence.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
