Why should the Crown Prince be taken to Denmark to be humiliated when Tokyo loses to either Chicago or Rio?

a mass humiliation is sooo much better than an individual one

I hope that Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako congratulate Mayor Daley on his Chicago victory.

Frankly, I think that they should leave the celebutaunts out of the process...

It is a crying shame to think that - after all the millions of dollars and hours that go into an Olympic Bid - somehow in the end it comes down to Obama or anyone else showing up and securing the winning bid...

IMO - As none of these politicos will have anything to do with the games except for what photo-ops are provided to them they should stay out of trying to sway the process - - - the selection process has gotten way out of hand in the last decade with all the STAR power at the presentation and votes...

Kick backs and perks used to be the controversy that secured winning bids - now appears that it's who rolls out the biggest line-up of celebrities...

Cheers,

Which competitions has Ishihara competed in around the world. Does he know that there are non-Japanese in other countries?
