I'm not going to attempt a total unpacking of tonight's subject because a.) it's really late (or early) and 2.) it really can't be described properly to anyone who didn't behold the no-holds-barred, unadulterated, sparkling, color-saturated, jaw-dropping, inconceivable whimsy that unfolded at tonight's Olympic opening ceremonies in Vancouver.
I couldn't really close my gaping jaw for over half of the three-hour parade of pomp. Really. That's it. I'm done.
