    We were mostly electrical guys. Most people probably wouldn't find the conversation that interesting, but compared to reading and writing standards - pretty zany stuff. Some great entertainment to be found, and plenty of early morning headaches.

    Does anyone else besides me think it's apalling that with the economy still in shambles and getting worse, our measure abroad amongst our former allies tumbling daily, Iran getting ready to nuke Israel off the face of the earth, our dear leader feels it necessary to spend billions of OUR money to pimp Chitcago for the Olympics? I'd like to see an accounting of what this trip will cost. Let's not forget the First Lady probably travels with at least half her staff, probably at a cost approaching the GDP of a medium-sized nation....

    The eunuch in the White House is fighting two wars, the economy is in a shambles, healthcare reform is a hot button issue and he has time to galavant off to Europe on the taxpayers dime to try and procure the Olympics for his home town. On the good side, if it is a CF, he will be out of office in 2012 so he won't get any blame.

    The proposed location will be located south of the Chicago downtown near the Sodiers Stadium with the Olympic Village and a stadium inthe area for 80,000. The marina and North Island will be converted into a water venue.

    They will deface Soldier Field by allowing soccer on it.
