• NBC Olympics (2/12/2010) Olympic luger killed in crash: The Georgia team may withdraw from competition.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - A men's Olympic luger from the country of Georgia died Friday after a high-speed crash on a track that is the world's fastest and has raised safety concerns among competitors. A tearful IOC president Jacques Rogge said the death hours before the opening ceremony "clearly casts a shadow over these games."
Nodar Kumaritashvili lost control of his sled during training, went over the track wall and struck an unpadded steel pole near the finish line at Whistler Sliding Center. Paramedics and doctors were unable to revive the 21-year-old luger, who died at a hospital, the International Olympic Committee said.

He and his wife Nanci have two married daughters and four grandsons, and currently make their home in Gresham, Oregon.

528-538 – Dinesh D'Souza, best-selling author and lecturer, is out with his latest – a great read – entitled Life After Death: The Evidence (dineshdsouza.com). Dinesh just debated atheist John Loftus at the University of Illinois, Champaign, this past week and he shares how it went. From the blogosphere, it looks like Dinesh did a superb job representing Christianity. Dinesh's views on evolution are controversial within some Christian circles, however. He accepts both macro and micro evolution, but considers God sovereign over the process – essentially, it was "how" God created man and the cosmos. I personally disagree with Dinesh, but nonetheless consider him a wonderful proponent of the faith.
