Just call it "Turin."


I hadn't given a lot of thought to the name of the "Torino" Olympics until I read Yglesias's post about it. But the man makes some good points, and I think I'm on his side. There's no reason why we call that one Torino and not Turin, when we call every other Olympics host city by its English name. The Times agrees.

I thought I was the only one who felt this way. I cringed all through the last Winter Olympics.
