Overnight Open Thread (7-25-2016)

Quote of the Day

Rio Seems Ready, Part Eleven

As the world turns its eyes to Rio for the grand unveiling of the Third World Olympics, there are continued signs that the lawless post-colonial slum town isn't quite prepared. Decapitated bodies and robberies are one thing. Crime stats are easily fudged. Zika babies linger, but you put a nice crocheted hat on their diminutive domes and nobody even screams in fear until kindergarten. Non-working toilets, that people are going to notice. The Australian Olympic team has announced they can't stay in the Olympic village because the plumbing and wiring in their housing is best described as 'So Rio".
