     "In a surprise move," Olympic organizers are seeking city
approval to use 15 of 25 "mega-signs" to pay tribute to cities
that have hosted the Games in the past.  ACOG spokesperson Lyn
May said that the committee "intends to lock down the signs and
make them dramatically smaller than allowed by city law."  ACOG
CEO Billy Payne last week promised the signs would be no larger
than 700 sq. feet, even though a recently passed city ordinance
would allow as much as 3,600 square feet.  The remaining 10 signs
still will be available to Olympic sponsors who pay the $40M
sponsorship fee (Lyle Harris, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 11/12).
