Security insurance

Just saw this on the Washington Time's website about NBC...

"For the first time, the threat of violence has led the International Olympic Committee to take out an insurance policy if the Games are canceled by war, terrorism or natural disaster. If the Games are called off, the International Olympic Committee will refund NBC's $793 million rights fee. Also, NBC's production costs are insured by a $160 million policy."

Which is interesting, but, I guess, just realistic on the IOC's part.

Now, where did all that good news get to?

I've been looking for an Olympic blog and am glad to find yours. Hope you don't mind my linking to you. I have been an Olympic enthusiast since going to Atlanta. Here's to a safe 2 1/2 weeks in Athens.
