We now learn that the highly publicized security for the Olympic Winter Games at Sochi, Russia, is as uneven as the snow slopes there. The security in the beginning and before the Games was much tighter than it is now. The Russians say the security is OK.

The Associated Press reported Monday that guests are walking unchecked past metal detectors and security guards no longer are checking individuals by poking around pockets and ankles and food items, once not allowed, are getting through barriers that once banned them. Security measures now are uneven, not consistent at points, and much more relaxed compared to the beginning of the Olympics.
