Chicago got the nod to try to get the Olympics over SF. SF had the Olympics
once before which is *supposedly* why they were turned down by the U.S.
committee. I would disagree <g>
The IOC happens to like SF. Folks on the IOC had traveled to and been given
the grand tour about a year ago. If the U.S. Olympic committee had actually
wanted the Olympics here, then they wouldn't have played brown nose with
Teflon and his strong-arm henchmen and given the nod to Chicago.
Just a thought.

to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and
servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theordore
