flowerPolish weightlifter Symon Kolecki has shaved his head in solidarity with Tibetan monks. The athlete had his scalp shaved just before he received the Silver Medal in weightlifting.  “This haircut is from this morning. I can’t directly say why I did it. It’s connected with certain things that the Olympic Charter forbids. But I will say that it’s symbolic,” Kolecki said.

    Asking whether Nelson Mandel is more inspiring than Angelina Jolie is one of the most puerile things I can imagine. Only a child, ignorant of all history, would think that Angelina Jolie was a greater inspiration than Nelson Mandela. I even think that she and Bono would be shocked if someone said that they were a greater inspiration than Mandela and King.

    Too true, Rob! It would be interesting to me to see how many youth were polled and what their responses were–not implying that they would vote differently, but just to see who resonates more with the younger crowd. To me, King and Mandela are timeless; but neither of my younger sisters are familiar with Mandela at all! That’s sad in and of itself, but given that (no idea if it’s a trend or not among high school students…)it would be interesting to see how youth would vote in this poll.
