Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I heard this week from a client in Chicago that all of Chicago is now convinced it will get the Olympics because Barack Obama is president.  I laughed and said that had never occurred to me and he laughed and said OF COURSE it hadn't because I wasn't from Chicago - the new capital of the world. :)

I wasn't prepared to cry that night.  But I did.  When the call flashed across the tv screen, I did.  When I saw all those people in Grant Park, I did.  When he came out with his little girls, I did.
