Olympics in Philadelphia?

There's sure been some speculation lately about Philadelphia's fitness and prospects for hosting a future Olympic games. First the Sunday Inquirer had a piece looking at all the ways Philly was way ahead of other contenders in having facilities already in place, etc. Now it appears there's an official study underway with a report expected this fall. I guess the city, heady with the success of Live8, is hungry for more of the spotlight. I tend to think in terms of the traffic, construction hassle, and general disruption of my enjoyment of city life, but there are probably better measures . . .
