The worm has, apparently, turned

Nice to see lots of positive reports in the newspapers this morning about the IOC's green light. It seems almost like the opposite of the old 'they build you up then knock you down' cliche - having reported all the bad stuff for the past few years, the papers actually seem quite pleased to be delivering the good news that things do finally seem to be coming together.

The only slight blot on the Olympic landscape (well, apart from the transport links not being ready yet) is that there is some talk of the Australian government advising citizens not to travel to Greece. The Greeks seem to think this is some sort of confusion - hope it turns out to be so. It's taken long enough to get this positive momentum building - we don't want it to disappear yet!
