JUST SAY NO: In Boston, Dan Shaughnessy wrote, "Stop the madness. Please. Can we have no more noise about the Olympics coming to Boston in 2024?" The city does "not need an event that would strangle us financially and logistically for decades." The world today is "peppered with wonderful cities still paying for Olympic Games and wishing the five rings never had invaded their boundaries." Shaughnessy: "If you believe in the Olympics in Boston you are either hopelessly naive, or you stand to profit from the venture" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/6).
