Far from ensured, Olympic Games now insured

My mum lives in Greece and when we heard that Athens had won the 2004 Games, we tilted the ouzo bottle one more time and just laffed and laffed.

Philhellene as I am, I'm not *that* deep in denial: Greece may be the home of les jeux originaux, boast the genuine Marathon route and all that, but one race the olive eaters will be pushed to win is getting everything ready in time. And the security ... smacks of overkill and confusion.

This and this pretty much say it all.
