Atlanta Death Count -- how many dead/dying?

Anybody have the latest numbers of those killed by the heat
in Atlanta?  I don't want to miss when we hit the "dozens"
mark I predicted some weeks back.

Probably a lot more people are dying due to the stupidity of your
posts than the heat in Atlanta.

However anyone who hasn't died from one of my posts doesn't have
any higher intelligence than my own.  And since you're still alive...

The *** rate is down though, so having the Games in Atlanta is
probably saving lives, overall.  (Sort of like Operation Desert Storm
saved American lives, in reducing the number of soldiers who die in
drunk driving accidents during the six months they were stationed in
an ***-free environment.)

 You kill me man. Your naivete runs all through this newsgroup about
the Olympics. I ask you Mr. McDaniel ...have you been to the Olympic
games in Atlanta ? Do you take pleasure in flaming the various snags
of the Olympic games instead of enjoying these incredible events for
what they are ? You must be a joy to live with.

Having traveled to Atlanta for these games I can tell you first hand
from a visitors viewpoint that they have been an incredible joy.
From what I hear IBM has screwed up 1 of 7 computer setups and that
one happens to be what gives the media their supposed instantanious
feeds. Well the media gets pissed and then as we all know ( or those
of us that deals with them)  the media has the great power of dragging
the ***to new levels.  

In my 4 days in Atlanta I saw people from several nationalities having
a blast. I saw participants busting their butts for their countries,
family , themselves  etc.. It restored my faith in the Olymic Spirit.
I am sorry you can't get that feel from NBC. Or from what ever scribe
you choose to read.

It was kinda hot but no worse than it can get in Chicago ( or I would
guess most places).  Your crack about people dying in the heat hits
low in thinking of those who perished in the heat in Chicago last
year. I hope you enjoy your little tabulation.

I am not sure of the problems with people missing events. But I can
tell you that things ran pretty well, yes it was crowded , but I have
seen much worse.  I know that the participants had seperate travel
arrangements and they should not have been waiting for public
transportation unless they missed their ride or their ride missed
them.

I think any blame with glitches should be pointed towards those who
took the high claim for the technology and it did not work. Such as
IBM or Bell South. To point blame on the city because it is hot is
just stupid. To point blame at the traffic , or the price gauging is
likewise weak. The traffic was not bad and I have paid for several
high priced beers at Wrigley  already in my life. I still enjoyed
myself.

Of course you are free to express you opinions. I will forever
remember these games with joy and awe, as will my family.
I am sorry if you will coninue to have your loathsome views of these
events having never gone or for that matter allowed yourself to enjoy
them. Sorry if my stupidity comment hit a soft spot.

Best to you..
    Ryan

Wow.  Blame it on "odds." I'm sure the families of the dead and dying
will see your point of view: NOT.  Oh well.  I shouldn't be surprised.
The Atlanta supporters have yet to take responsibility for anything
else including the stuff that's broke at any temperature.

You're just as cluless as that talk show host and Atlanta apologist seen
on CNN's crossfire last night.

I'm leaving tomorrow - I'll try and count all the bodies lying around
for you.  I do know that a member of the Polish contingent had a heart
attack at opening ceremony - does that count?

Are you just speculating that many people have died, or do you have
proof...ie-names, locations, ages, that sort of thing.  I live near
Chicago, which last year had a terrible heat wave in which over 600
people died.  There was no cover-up about it, there was something on
the news about it every day for weeks.  BTW, it was over a hundred in
Chicago for several days, and was very humid together with the fact
that it was fairly early in the summer and we weren't aclimated to the
heat yet, one of the reasons that so many people died.

Um...  zero.

Well...  I mean, people die from heat exposure all the time...  but
there haven't been any outstanding cases in the games.

And *BEFORE* you go and bash Atlanta, remember that during the
heat wave of Chicago two years ago *300* died.

As reportd by the Atlanta Journal & Constitution:

    Approximately 500,000 people are attending Olympic events each day;

    Of those attending, only, approximately 500 people are requiring
medical assistance each day;

    Only 11%, or approx. 65 people each day are requiring medical
assitance because of heat exhaustion.  In most cases a little water and
few minutes of rest is all of the medical attention required.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but there have been no heat related
deaths!

    FRANKLY, MY DEAR, YOUR WORRIES ARE A BIT OVERDONE...try to relax a
bit and let those attending the Games enjoy the party that you
obviously chose not the attend.

But, nobody is dead or dying.  DUH, do they teach you ANYTHING
at Washington or are you there on the 10 years and out plan?  Odds
are, in a million people, deaths will occur whenever, wherever.  If
someone dies in his sleep its the fault of the games?  PUH-LEAZE.

No, you're just a bandwagon jumper who hasn't even been here to the
games.  You are the clueless one.  Now, go back to masturbating.

Hey stupid.  Take a city of one million to two million people OR
substitute that city with the number of expected Olympic visitors..
Then check to see how many obituaries you read in 17 days.   Those
same people would have probably died whether they're at the Olympics
or not.  The odds have already determined it.
