Here's a thought for the Boston 2024 Olympics...


Forget the bloated Olympic games that serve no useful public purpose, let alone justify the massive dislocations and expenses involved. By all means, ask the Greeks what their legacy from the 2004 games was, beyond crushing debt and crumbling, useless venues.  Then consider what a worthy 2024 Olympics for Boston should be : a comprehensive, ambitious project designed to repair roads and bridges, rescue the schools and public education, work with the Commonwealth to repair and improve mass transit,  address urban over-development and attendant congestion, and reform the city's finances with a view to reducing the oppressive property-tax burden on those who are not in the 1%.
