No Olympics in 2024

It’s now official that there will be no Summer Olympics in 2004 in the City of Boston. Perhaps things could have been different with a better strategy of rolling out the plan, but the proposal never garnered a clear-cut majority, either of residents or the politicians, who wanted to see the Olympics held in Boston. We were anxiously awaiting whether Governor Charlie Baker — who has been doing a great job, in our opinion, in taking command of our state — favored having the Olympics here or was going to say he didn’t want Boston to host the Games — but all that does not matter now with the USOC pulling Boston’s bid. (The Governor was waiting for the results of a $250,000 study before speaking for or against Boston hosting the Games.)
