Kudos to the Chinese for producing an amazing opening ceremony. Mouths here were agape.
Mayor Daley wants the 2016 summer games to be in Chicago. Here's hoping he fails. We can't beat what the Chinese have done, and we'll be bankrupted even trying. The Olympics were a good idea when it was a bunch of amateurs, but have become, as one member of the International Olympic Committee referred to it, "a brand". I don't think tax money should be used to promote the brand.
