Delusions Exposed

If any US city deserved to host the 2016 Olympics, it was Chicago.

But a third Summer Games (LA, Atlanta...) in three decades?  After US leaders snubbed world opinion for the better part of eight years?  Because a popular new president spent a couple hours lobbying IOC delegates in Copenhagen?  Up against an emerging world power (Brazil), on a continent (South America) that has never before hosted the Olympics?  

Congratulations Rio!
