The olympic games start in Rio on August 5th, and continue through August 21st.

I hope they run smoothly, and are nothing other than magnificent showcases of human talent.

But I have no confidence at all that will happen.

Not with the zika scourge;

Not with the rampant crime Rio is justifiably known for;

Not with the olympics’s value as a terrorist target, combined with police and military protection I do not know to be first-tier.

Let me say, again, that I hope this all works out beautifully.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
