Boston Dodges the Olympics

It appears, given Mayor Walsh’s refusal to guarantee cost overruns with tax dollars, that Boston has managed to dodge hosting the Olympics. Not only didn’t Boston ‘need’ the Olympics, but hosting the Olympics for a city like Boston would have been equivalent to a shotgun wedding–nothing adds stability to a marriage like kids, amirite? Functional polities shouldn’t need sports events to provide effective services to their citizens.

Besides, L.A. might actually be a good host for the Games.
