Ted Griffith: What are these ‘Pan Am Games,’ now?

Based on what I have seen and read, here’s the sum of what I know about the Pan Am Games: the organizers have gone well over budget; there will be enormous traffic congestion; and a lot of money is being spent to convince me to change my work schedule, carpool or take transit to work. As far as investing anything to convince me to actually go to the Games themselves — I haven’t seen much. I only know that the sales of tickets could only be worse if they were exclusively available at Target stores.

    Ticket sales are less than perfect?!

    Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by this face upon arrival at a Pan-Am facility?….

    • Wow, no security whatsoever.

        I call that screen-grab ‘Irony wore a hijab’.

    The games are for the rent seeking nobility and their political toadies, not for the poor saps like us who will be handed the bill.
