::what's in a name?::

Will somebody tell me why they (the man, the powers that be, NBC, EVERYONE) are calling the Winter Olympics the Torino Olympics when it is in Turin? What in the heck is wrong with the name Turin?

We didn't call the Atlanta olympics the Georgia Olympics and the Salt Lake games were not refered to as the Mormon Olympiad,etc . . .

So what gives? Have you seen any reports giving credit to this jackassery?
