I am watching the Olympics and the Russian figure skater that just turned in a near perfect program crossed himself after his program (thumb and two fingers) Vashenko I think is his name.
An Orthodox Olympian!

It's nice to get that every once and awhile... Of course, it coming from a Russian olympian wouldn't affect the audience as much as it would coming from, say, an American or an Asian....
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

It is Yevgeni Pluschenko.  I don't like him - he's just seems so arrogant...as if he's just entitled to win every time.
