BERLIN JOINS THE LIST OF CITIES WITH STADIUM PROBLEMS

     Berlin's Olympic Stadium, built for the '36 Olympic Games,
is "practically falling down," according to Clive Freeman of the
Deutche Presse Agentur.  Experts say it will cost $200M or more
to repair the facility.  The city hopes to host the World Cup in
2006, and will need use of the stadium.  The stadium's outer ring
is reportedly in a "brittle state," and "lumps of concrete fall
periodically from the roof."  A net protects visitors from
"falling segments" (Dan Hanley, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL,
8/15).
