Munich Plus 30-I had forgotten when I had posted on Olga Korbut earlier today that this was the 30th anniversary of the Olympic massacre of Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists. They proceeded to give the middle-digit salute to the Western Civ Olympic goal of all peoples coming together and getting along via sport. That such a massacre could come at a sporting event should have shocked some people into the depth of the battle that would be waged. It's not unthinkable today. Nothings off limits. Some people point to the Kennedy assassination as the end of our innocence. For me, this one's more like it. Check out the blogburst on this issue over at Dodgeblog.
