Newsday previews Olympics

Hey, gang, check this out: The Olympics start Friday!

Seems like it's only been a year-and-a-half or so since the last one, doesn't it?

I contributed two things to our preview section:

A look here at the fact most of the big events from Vancouver will be seen live in the East and a hodgpodge of other media-related tidbits here.

I'll be ticked off if Lindsey Vonn can't go and all that time I invested reading excellent features on her by my good friends Tim Layden of SI and Bill Pennington of the NYT goes for naught.

Not everyone is pleased with Ms. Vonn's decision to pose in a bikini for SI's Swimsuit Issue. I understand both sides of that issue, but isn't it better for society to celebrate a powerful, 160-pound female body than some of those give-that-poor-girl-a-burger models we usually see?
