The final leg of the Olympic torch relay made its way into Turin yesterday afternoon. Many spectators cheered and waved flags. Many more drivers cursed. Driving is a challenge here anyway, especially when traffic gets held up for a motorcade made of dozens of police and Olympic vehicles and one torch. Combine that with the usually, uh, aggressive style of driving and the circles (or roundabouts) like we have in D.C. and you get a very special Olympic moment.

P.S. About 2,500 athletes and 10,000 journalists reportedly are here. The first number seems solid. The second number appears to be light.
