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!
Gloria was downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it hit NJ, as are most hurricanes. And like you said it was fairly tame in my area too. Floyd, on the other hand flooded my entire county. (deleted by David Adams on 17.9.03 1024)
