Cancel The 2008 Olympics

They need to seriously think about cancelling the Olympics in the wake of this earthquake. Officials say the death toll could rise to more than 50,000.

50,000 is a big number when you're talking about most things. 50,000 is an obscene number when you attach it to human lives that could possibly be lost after this earthquake.

Think about how many people 50,000 people is. It's ridiculous! I don't see how they can possibly carry on with these games. I understand Beijing is almost 1,000 miles away from where the earthquake hit, but still. Even if every venue that is to hold an Olympic event is in tip top shape, they should still cancel the games.

I'm sure they won't, but they should at least discuss it.
