So True, WP. Tribalism or secterianism is not even necessary now though in a modern world.Even the Irish and UK have hung up their holsters. Ukraine for example is still consumed with tribalism and regionalism,and secterianism to the detriment of the whole country.That is my point. The Ukies have to be re - educated there in modern critical and analytical thinking. I would love to see Mitt Romney or Angela Merkel as president of Ukraine. No nonsense , just business. Work to survive or move on . If you fight each other.... jail. Period. PS . I did a medal ratio like you too ( Science thinker ), and the Ukies did very well in proportion to their population of 45 million.... about the same as Germany with 90 million , per capita.

Phillip: Even more important than the ratio is the idea that the athletes are competing for themselves. It really doesn't matter which country got the most medals. The medals won have absolutely nothing to do with whether a country is good or bad. Look how many medals were won by the CCCP; does that mean it was a good place to live-- I don't think so.

I would lilke to see a good hard-working president for Ukraine who would work for the good of the country and its people instead of for himself. Unfortunately that would require a true statesman instead of a politician. I don't think they make statesmen anymore--at least I haven't seen one in quite awhile. Putins, Yanukovichs, and LUkaschenkos are waiting under every rock but there sre no more statesmen.

Ukraine does well in sport, as the soviet based sports training systems were not too bad and continue to some extent.The Olympics are actually over - hyped ,in my view.I would rather see the money go into local schools and hospitals and orphanages in Ukraine.Politically, Ukraine has had nothing but a series of Demagogues and Populist politicians that make big promises,that are attractive to the lowest common denominator of IQ, like regionalism and language differences but deliver nothing economically, but simply enrich themselves, make their friends wealthy, and plunder the economy and ruin the country.Yulia T. was a populist politician with some good ideas, but was surprised that when she tried to do as Yanukovich and others had done,at the behest of her shady husband and black market businessman Oleksander Tymoshenko and she was arrested and convicted and singled out.So the ruling elite share the spoils. Hard to say, what can be done there in Ukraine to improve the place while Yulia T. rots in prison and no one really cares. Meanwhile the USA has a 16 trillion dollar net debt load, that keeps growing,and an armaments based economy, that costs a trillion a year, so who knows what to do ?

Obviously you do need some friendly correction. IF you keep making silly mistakes people will not find you credible. Don't get your shorts in a knot; the correction was NOT meant as a criticism but as a help.

Obviously you do need some help with English. Don't get your shorts in a knot; the correction was meant as a help, NOT a criticism. You are way to sensitive.

* way TOO sensitive.

Too is an adverb meaning (1) additionally,(2) excessively,(3) very, or (4) extremely.
Whenever you’re in doubt about whether to use to or too, see if any of those synonyms of too (i.e., additionally, extremely, etc.) would work in its place. If none fits, then to is probably the word you’re looking for.
