I wasn't sure where to put this, I started to put it in the Current Events, however it's sort of a prediction topic... ?????
• New York among five finalists for 2012 Olympics
LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The International Olympic Committee has named a shortlist of five cities as possible hosts for the 2012 Olympics.
The five -- London, Madrid, Moscow, New York and Paris -- become official candidates, beginning a 14-month race that will end with the selection of a
winning bid by the IOC's assembly in Singapore in July 2005.
Favorites Paris and London promoted the attractions of their landmarks, Madrid promised an environmentally friendly Games while New York dubbed
itself the "world city."
New York has never hosted the Games, although the U.S. last staged them in Atlanta in 1996, and also hosted last year's Winter Games in Salt Lake
Okay, with all the hype about 2012, war on terror and the end of the world, doesn't this just fit right in ? New York hosting the 2012 Olympics
and all hell breaking loose?
