    Mrs. Weir doesn't need to develop anything. You didn't know the whole story but yet you jump in and start judgeing Mrs. Weir.

    Do you say anything nice about anyone???

She did say she's not what you call a pretty crier.---I don't know many people who look good when they're having an emotional moment. I guess she didn't want the camera to catch that moment.
    Funny I saw her do the same thing at the cup of Russia, missed it here though.

    I totally concur. Thank you for your previous post, also, and thanks to all who defended Mrs. Weir. It was indeed gracious of her to do an interview segment (which I regret having missed), but she is certainly under no *obligation* to perform for the public.

    The skaters work incredibly hard; their families make many sacrifices to enable them to realize their dreams, and we are the lucky recipients of the gift of watching their achievements. I, for one, am grateful for that gift.
