  • WASHMORE GAMES? DC & BALTIMORE TO COMBINE 2012 OLYMPIC BID

              Washington, DC and Baltimore corporate leaders
         "overwhelmingly agreed" yesterday that the two cities should
         join forces in a "unified bid" for the 2012 Summer Olympic
         Games, according to Charles Babington of the WASHINGTON
         POST.  Area business execs agreed that a combined bid had a
         better chance of securing the games than would the separate
         efforts launched earlier by each city.  A nine-member
         "business steering-committee" was named to pursue details of
         combining the two bids (WASHINGTON POST, 12/4).  In
         Baltimore, Jon Morgan reports that last night's group "left
         to an ad hock steering committee the difficult decisions
         about how to integrate the sometimes-antagonistic bidders." 
         Morgan adds that chief among the items the new committee
         must settle includes what to call the Games (SUN, 12/4).
