The Shame of Pageantry: The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony

I’m deeply offended by opulence. I think people who eat three meals a day are showing off. I don’t understand expensive watches. I drive a ‘99 Ford Taurus that doesn’t have any heat, which to me is a little showy. You can only imagine what it was like for me to watch the opening ceremonies of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
