Most of the flag-bedecked partiers here don’t have a clue that we’re being trashed in the international media and, even if they did, they probably wouldn’t care.

But it’s a big topic among the inner circle of Olympics diehards, reporters and news junkies. I got invited to give a local perspective on the Games and our image to the Guardian, which has been running articles so far saying the city is “filled with dread” and shipping homeless people out to clean things up.

Here’s the link to my piece, which has already kicked off several dozen comments since it was posted this morning London time.
