I wish they had given it to New York, but if we couldn't get it, I'm glad the Brits got it. At least they didn't give it to the French, and the way Jacques Chirac has been putting his foot in his mouth at the G8 summit, it might have started a war if they had. I can't even remember all the nasty things he said, but among them was his low opinion of British and Finnish food. There are more than a few people on the planet who think the French are rude, and their president has now proven that he is one Frenchman who fits the description. I'm damn glad they didn't give them another Olympics while he's in office.
