Re-Thinking the Olympics

Like a lot of things in our modern world that are media driven, the Olympics are out of control. They were not always that way. But most important, the cost of building the infrastructure that is needed to host the event means that local citizens get smacked with a huge tab.

That is why Boston just said “no” to hosting the 2024summer games. 

This quote says it all

it is important to remember we should never be planning our cities around three-week events, or planning our cities around visitors. We should be planning our cities in a way that will work for decades, and will benefit the residents of the city.

What to do? I propose that we pick a single site and keep the olumpicsthere. Greece would be pretty cool.

What do you think?
