SUMMER LOVIN': SPORTS ON EARTH's Peter Richmond wrote of N.Y. announcing it will not bid for the '24 Summer Games, "All northeasterners can now exhale a deep sigh of relief." Neither of the nation's "most historic burgs will be laying out billions of dollars, better spent on actual infrastructure improvements." Richmond: "We know this now: The Olympics don't help cities. More often than not, they help bring them down" (SPORTSONEARTH.com, 6/2). In DC, Thom Loverro writes, "Unfortunately, the powers that be in Washington are still committed to wasting more money and resources for a chance to host an event that, at the very least, will make nearly all of your lives miserable for an entire summer, or, at the very worst, send governments into economic tailspins and leave broken dreams in its wake" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 6/2).
