It's good and right to ask the President of the United States not to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Beijing - but what if we all told the Chinese government that we won't be watching?
We have watched the violence in Darfur for so long, we have asked, we have protested, we have pleaded - only to notice that the Chinese government didn't use its significant influence in Khartoum to end the atrocities.
Will you send President Hu of China a letter to let him know that you won't be watching?
Will you tell NBC that you won't be watching?
NBC has paid a lot of money for the exclusive broadcasting rights for the United States - you have the power to turn off your TV on the day of the opening ceremony. Use the time to be with friends, pray for peace, or play with your kids.
