Changed the lives of George

Changed the lives of George Harrison, Wayne Gretzky, and the pope? If it was John Paul II (and if it was Benedict, did he change him into "God's rottweiler"?), two out of three are now dead, and Gretzky is the owner of the Phoenix Coyotes. Seems to me that's not a very good box score.

Just a point of accuracy:

Just a point of accuracy: unless there is a new moppet-haired teen heartthrob out there, I believe it's Justin Beiber, not Jason.

Janet, I was going to put

Janet, I was going to put innocence, selflessness, and kindness into my blog but I didn't want to get mobbed by all those competitive yogis out there.

I can't resist responding to

I can't resist responding to this. How far yoga has moved form its roots of human spirituality. If the IOC could judge the most spiritual yogi by a competition, the world could indeed be near its end, as competition and spirituality seem to me to be quite the opposite, or am I lost in a distant past of innocence, selflessness, and kindness?

OK, so now you've got *me* in

OK, so now you've got *me* in activist mood as well: the time has come for a grass-roots campaign to pressure the IOC into including *yogurt* at the next Olympics! Yeah: what's with their current "no yogurt" status anyway? It makes no sense. Yogurt is full of all kinds of healthful enzymes...

I see at least 4 events:

1) Single-serving yoghurt hurling (men's and women's categories)
2) Team yogurt eating (I've been agitating for competitive eating events at the Olympics for years; yogurt is as good a place to start as any...)
3) 800 meter freestyle yogurt relay: a team sport; 8 laps in a yogurt-filled Olympic-sized pool (gelatin-free yogurt to reduce viscosity)
4)Three-meter springboard yogurt diving
