the olympics


Now maybe the city can focus on something other the getting the bid.

But WTF eliminating us first? Screw the IOC.

I'm disappointed, but I'd like to think Tom's right, and it's more about fairness and untapped possibilities than anything else. Rio could be interesting --- and I think it's a step forward for the IOC to choose a South American venue. I hope the investment will be a positive thing for Rio and its people.

FWIW, there's *rampant* disgust amongst people I know down here at the idea of President Obama's taking part in Copenhagen. They're critical enough already of the amount of time he's spent out of the Oval lately; I wonder how the end result of this is going to play with them.... I'll see some of them at a party I have to go to tonight; it should be interesting. I'm gonna try to talk about anything *but* politics, international or otherwise. ;) As usual.
