The more I read about this thing, the more I find how detestable it is. Coming two years off of a World Cup, spending billions on that, the country is spending billions more on a Summer Olympics. And I just saw a story about how sail racing contestants are having to dodge trash in the bay where they practice. Plastic bags, chairs, flip flops, everything. Oh yeah, and some small problem with raw sewage. And that country is bordering on a civil breakdown as well, not to mention the Zika virus. If I was a contestant, I would think twice about going, but I know that I would choose to go in the end. These are people that have dedicated their lives to this one event, and to miss a four year cycle could be the end of them. But still, what an unmitigated disaster for Brazil.
