POSTED RESPONSES TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
See what up close?
Some pipes with gas-fed flames at the end?
What a terrible aesthetic deprivation that is.
"The cauldron will be open to the public Monday March 1st..."
I think that says it all, about the torch, about the flame, about this ugly pile of ductwork, and about the Olympic nonsense.
The cauldron will be open - a phrase right out of cheap science fiction movie.
"...all we get for the symbol of the games is a chain link fence"
You get a chain-link fence with a pile of galvinized ductwork behind it belching flames.
The image, to my mind, is nothing so much as some part of a factory or sour-gas plant.
