So much hype about the London Olympic Games. They're not "real" anymore. So much security necessary, so much bickering between competitors and organisers and so much worrying about the London weather! Is it all worth it? No.
Is it worth all the millions of money spent on stadiums (stadia?), extra buildings and personnel. For what? About 10 days of television viewing for a small portion of the world and a lot of publicity for certain commercial enterprises and products. Is it worth it? No.
Hate to be a "party pooper" but I sincerely hope that these London games are the last Olympic Games ever held.
