Barry and Mich are in Denmark lobbying for Chicago as the site of the 2016 Olympics. You can't really blame them for wanting to bring it home but it's pretty stupid. America gets the Olympics all the time and Chicago's not that nice. Do it in Orlando. Plenty of hotel rooms and have the games at Disney World. Few minor mods, Voila!
It's really not fair for America to get the Olympics again. The Olympics is a great shot in the arm for a place that needs some good PR and a little economic stimulus. There are plenty of places that have never had a turn at the Olympics. How about the Gaza Strip? Ulan Bator? Lagos? Phnom Pehn? Calcutta? Now any of those places, would make for an exciting, educational and culturally broadening Summer excursion for families the World over and I'm sure their friendly inhabitants would like to welcome in the World for a neighborly visit.
