There’s a puff piece at the Salt Lake 2002 site explaining how the Olypic torch bearers were chosen. I mention this because my aunt was selected as one of the torch bearers and got to carry the torch for a few hundred yards last week down in Texas. Unlike some nominees, who collude with the person who nominates them, my aunt was selected after my sister nominated her without my aunt’s foreknowledge. So I just want to congratulate my aunt and sister for the accomplishment (and my aunt for everything she’s accomplished that led to her being selected).
