    I was using >250,000 people as my definition of a "big city."

    The United States hosts a great deal of these things, so I don't really see the need to do so.

    Personally I'm glad. I really don't want one of the worst crime ridden cities representing our country. I would have preferred some place like Oklahoma City as it is considered the heart of our country.

    Doh forgot to add the poll. And can't figure out how to edit it to where there is one. :P Could a mod add one please? Just a Yes, No, Other for the options would be good. Thanks in advance.
    I do not watch the olympics and kind of feel that this a globalist event and I oppose globalism. So I could care less what city gets pick. On the other hand it would mean a lot of tourist dollars to the city that has the Olympics in it.

    I also think it is rather idiotic to gloat over the fact Obama couldn't get the Olympics to Chicago, that is like gloating over a republican who got a parking ticket or Dick Cheney getting into a hunting accident. If Obama doesn't pass any socialized medicine, fails to pull the troops out of Iraq or Afghanistan ,fails to close Gitmo or fails to give amnesty to illegals then that would be something to gloat over because those are things that will have an impact if he succeeds.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    While it might not be in the top 10 it certainly isn't close to the bottom.

    From Aug. 27, 2009 Sept. 26, 2009 there were 33,155 crimes committed. Not exactly a city that I would like to visit or represent our country.

    Don't really know if it has the capacity or not. But it was just my suggestion.

    Someone asked why I called it "the heart of America". Reason is that that is what it is called. Much like Chicago is called "The Windy City" Oklahoma is called "The Heartland of the US". Don't know why it is called thus. I just know that it is.
