Come on now.  You know the Olympian gods are only trying to protect the
spirit of the games.  They have to keep people from commercializing the
event, and that's why they are so careful about the name.  If you give a
large enough offering, they will probably leave you alone.

I'd worry a lot more about their charges of price-gouging if they didn't
ask for half of the tickets and hotel rooms for their own use.  If I were
cynical, I'd think they were reselling, but those pure souls probably
haven't even thought of that.

Actually, I'm quite sure they have. IMHO the ACOG is nothing more than a
bunch of shucksters pulling off the hugest scam!

Yes...but they are also going after pre-existing places, like Olympic
Laundry or resturant or whatever it was I'd read earlier.  These
had nothing to do with the games.

Hi,
We were wondering how to find out about who is in charge of the contract
bids on traffic control for the Olympics.
                                                  Thank You.
