Pardon my language, but - Fuck Yeah Stephen Fry!If they do not boycott the winter Olympics I will refuse to watch it. No, even if it is under boycott I still will not watch it unless they move the Venue.

That hurts me to say, because more than the Olympics I love watching the winter Olympics. That is where I get to see so much beautiful talent.

Oh well, I will watch figure skating and other winter sports else where.

I know that we shouldn't throw the baby out with the bath, but it is hard to see the good through all crap that is happening there.

Thank you for sharing this.

I second your Fuck Yeah!

Watching the Olympics is something I did with my Dad, so part of me doesn't want to miss the opportunity to feel close to him—but Stephen makes many excellent points.

You're welcome. :)

Stephen Fry is one of my idols: so articulate, thoughtful, funny, sharp, kind and generous. This letter just confirms it, and raises my opinion of him even higher. Thanks for posting this -- I'm going to send it around to everyone I know!

I agree, and you're welcome. I'm glad you're sharing it, too; Stephen Fry is excellent. :)
