    It's 100% true. It's joint. Swiss was informed by the US back in March and brought into the fold. Swiss joined the investigation then.

I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    Rosa Khutor, the "ski village" in the nearby Caucuses where the Olympics were held has an average January temperature of about 50F.

    Nothing about the region says "Snow".

    The mountain caps have snow, but that area is unsuitable for anything but extreme skiing. That is why they trucked in huge amounts of chemically treated snow for most of the events and the "Ski Village" had water flooding through it all week from the melt-off of the artificial snow events further up the mountain.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
