rinjr715,

Thanks for your advice and interest. I realize that a lot of folks around here think that the Olympic Commitees are just a bunch of crooks and I tend to agree. But when you go from accepting bribes from city officials to stealing from Olympic fans I think we're talking about apples and oranges here.

Bribes to bring the Olympics to one's city probably have played a role in aquiring an Olympic games for some time and ripping off the public has probably also gone on for sometime now. But, both of those things need to stop.

What I'm about to say next might be a little off of the topic but I think it relates to this situation.

Anytime something in my life would take a turn for the worse or I felt I had been slighted in someway my mother would always say, "Well, life's not fair."
And to that statment I say "Bulls**t". This, in my opinion, is a statement that the rich have created and the not-so-rich just keep repeating. It's time to stop repeating it. Why shouldn't I or you or the next guy be treated fairly just because we don't have as much money? The reason to date is because we allow those with money to treat us like that and never say anything, or not enough of us say something.

Well,m I'm getting a bit preachy here and I really should do some work.
I'll be posting my letters to the SLOC a little later this week.
