I think they should forgo the bid for the Olympics and do an internal Olympic...one to build shelter for the homeless...as so many live under blue tarps along rivers, but with dignity, put on suits each and every day and try to find work. This country has the best homeless looking people I have ever seen. I always try to give them some food or what ever when I see them. I see them often.
