What you have to do, John, is divide the cost per population over about four or five thousand years, and then it won't seem so expensive. They have been waiting a long time for this :) The drummers--and the moveable type fellows--and the little earthquake survivor--all were terrific.

I agree, these games are far better than any I've ever seen. But they're the best games money can buy, to the tune of five times what anyone else has spent on an Olympics. I think that qualifies as wretchedly excessive... :)
