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).
