If anybody here is from the Salt Lake City area, I hope they're proud of the great job they and the United States did in hosting these Olympics. One of the Canadian anchors made a great point which I didn't really think about until after the Games were over, and that is that the United States is the only country in the world that would've be able to host the games as scheduled after the September 11 disaster. The $300 million increases in security is something which was not talked about at all, but should've been. Plus, they still managed to break even, which is pretty amazing considering the security costs.
Way to go Salt Lake City, and way to go, USA - let me be the first of hopefully many to thank you for a job very, very well done!
Certainly on my list of things to do before I die, but with a young son who's birthday is on or around this event every year, it might not be until he's old enough to go with me or old enough to hate my guts before I go ;-)
