Marion Can't Attend Beijing Games

If Canada does not permit convicted felons to enter their country, then I'd be astonished if China would.

I'd guess that Marion is free to go to Holland, Venezuela, Sicily, Panama, Crete, Columbia, and San Francisco as many times as she wants.

I read your quote as such:

As a convicted felon, Marion cannot even travel to Canada.

Point taken, however.


What am I missing here? Should I have written, "Marion, as a convicted felon, cannot even travel to Canada?"

You:re reading way too much into this. Both of our points are made.

I'm not reading anything into anything. I'm trying to figure out what your point was?

Exactly what I stated it was, namely, "Felons serving time aren:t permitted to leave the country as far as I know." It piggy-backed on to your point, which you had not intended.

Copy, the underlined words threw me off.

Extending your original point, even if China would let her in, the passport office could deny her a passport by administrative ruling anyway, especially if she hadn't satisfied a fine from her conviction.

She Can't Attend

At 2;43 p.m., an MSNBC anchor, in repsonse to Keith Olbermann's observations that Sen. Mitchell recommend's no penalty, said "..she can't even attend the Games as a spectator!" in the context of MLB levying no penalties.

NBC is threatening with a webcast of everything (or at least of preliminaries not televised in prime time). Until further notice of disappointment, I am drooling.

University officials said they will remove some of the pictures where she is featured with teammates in display cases and replaced them with individual pictures.

Apparently, the individual photos are now down.
