    read this today...about the athens olympics in 2004:

    "Although officials claim the reductions are due to decreased requirements, cost overruns and overly ambitious plans are thought to be the main reason the Olympics budget has skyrocketed to nearly $6 billion -- about twice the original estimate.

    The high cost has led the government to also cut needed highway and infrastructure projects, while the defense ministry postponed the purchase of new jet fighters and other weapons systems to help fund the Olympics. "

    ummm...?
    does this seem a little ridiculous? olympics for 3000 atheletes is more important than country infrastructure?
