Don't worry, be happy

Finally, somebody who knows what he's talking about when it comes to the Olympics and security pointed out the obvious. Peter Ueberroth, the director of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, said that concerns about the Athens Games being targeted by terror groups would not be borne out.

"I believe the Athens Games will be a good Games, and that there will not be any major security incidents," he told reporters at a Manhattan function showcasing New York City's bid for the 2012 Games. "(Terrorism) relies on cowardice and an element of surprise. Athens is ready, so that takes away the element of surprise."
When Ueberroth was asked about the possible consequences of construction delays, smog, sunstroke, earthquakes, the position of the moon and a butterfly sneezing in China, he said, hey forgetaboutit, the Greeks have a handle on chaos. They invented that word, didn't they?
