The words of another: Katrina Onstad

"The two weeks of the Olympics undoes, just a little, the onslaught of absurd images of women's bodies that make up the four years in between.  In ads and entertainment and at salons, our bodies are pumped with chemicals, peeled and waxed and maintained and worked out, but are they ever really triumphant?  Are they driven toward any goal but beauty?"
-- Modern Times column by Katrina Onstad, Chatelaine, March 2010
