Norway Wins the Gold

Norway has decided to drop its bid to bring the winter Olympics to Oslo, not only a justifiable decision but the only justifiable decision. I can only think that the reason more cities and countries don't tell the IOC to go jump in a lake is that the decisions are being made by people who hope to cash in on the racket. Most of these people are probably mistaken.

Norway, though, has always seemed to me to be a sensible country, with a high regard with social welfare, except for lutefisk. I'm also a big fan of their traditional policies concerning England.

Can anyone name an umbrella sports organization at this point which is not essentially a criminal enterprise?

In his heart I think he's OK with that.
