Thank Your Stars (and No Games) That This is NOT Us

From The Mail of London, “Every day, the organisers of the 2012 Olympics must thank their lucky stars for unending global economic disaster. ‘Pheweee,’ they mutter as another basket-case economy in the Eurozone  demands another trillion on pain of implosion. Because if times were normal and stable, there would not just be an outcry about the handling of the London Games. Heads would roll. Ministers would be apologising to the House every week. Instead, we just shrug. Another billion or three chucked down the pan by another bunch of unsackable incompetents? Never mind. It’s only a few billion. That’ll barely cover their pensions anyway.” The London Games were originally budgeted at 2.4 billion pounds ($3.7 billion) and is now at 9.4 billion pounds ($14.6 billion).
