The flame went by my apartment last night... I just stood on the balcony to watch the pageantry below. Then, I tried to get some sleep, but the damn city wanted fire-works too and that kept me up for a while.
I had to open the library this morning, but University Parkway was closed for the flame... fortunately, I have many alternative routes, and was on time. I watched as the official olympic s.u.v., fitted with a huge torch, took to I15 in a blaze of glory... so, so american: suv's and huge fires.
