I suspect this is by design. When these games are being hosted in authoritarian countries, one needs to start looking into just who were awarded the construction contracts. I'm guessing that explains a lot of the cost overruns.

yes!
Ever since an animated adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's 1988 graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke was announced by Warner Brothers and producer Bruce Timm at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back, fans have been fervently hoping that actor Mark Hamill, who voiced the Joker in the classic Batman: The Animated Series (as well as in a few other iterations over the years, most recently the Arkham Knight video game), would come out of "ba...

Story
Tagline
Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
