London chases 2012 Olympic dream

In today's International Herald-Tribune: an article detailing all the resouces London is willing to pour into getting the 2012 Olympic bid. I always love seeing cities go after ridiculously big, very traditional goals. I've always thought that Chicago, for example, where I live, should host a modern world's fair, even though a lot of people have said that globalization and the internet have killed the need for them anymore; the sheer audacity of even seriously wanting to do one would say cool things about our city, I think, much like the cool things it says about London that they seriously want to get an Olympics bid.
