On the night the opening ceremonies were broadcast, I got very emotional and wept for joy when scenes of the Atlanta area, the Georgia coast ...

Times staff members recall memories of '96 Olympics

"I was one of two non-sports reporters sent to Clark's Bridge Park every day during the games, covering such things as who got arrested, who fell in the lake because of the heat and whether any of these finely-toned rowers actually visited the McDonald's inexplicably set up in the athlete's village.
