    Well did the Jamaicans pay off the people they were supposed to? If not, they really can't expect anything.

    A fellow poster on the hockey board I frequent is also a camera operator for NBC. He has been regaling us with stories about what a nightmare Brazil is courtesy of NBC's security briefing for its personnel. He came very close to turning down the assignment (apparently he's got enough seniority that he can do that) but in the end the $ was just too good to pass up.

    He landed in Rio a few hours ago- he says there are Brazilian Army troops everywhere and they are heavily armed.
