According to CNN, the city of Fukuoka in Japan is tossing its hat in the ring to host the 2016 Olympics.
  • "Fukuoka is a city with everything one-tenth the size of the capital Tokyo," said the 74-year-old post-modern architect, whose works inclde the gymnasium for the 1992 Barcelona Games and the ice-hockey arena for the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics.
Everything is one tenth the size of Tokyo? So the buildings are miniscule and the people are wee? I think they have a place like that on Main St. USA at Disney World.

Meanwhile, the city of Me giggles every time it tries to pronounce Fukuoka. GO FUKUOKA GO!
