Gas! Gas! Gas!

It is reported that the US Olympic Committee (USOC) will be supplying gas masks to all 500 of their athletes and entourage, who will be attending the Olympics 2004 in Athens.

The emergency escape masks (gas masks to you and I) are designed to provide protection against tear gas, and other noxious agents.

It is estimated that the USOC bought around 1000 of these, at $150 a piece.

They might come in handy if the summer winds, needed to disperse the Athens smog, don't appear.
