Olympics 2016

There are some noises around these parts about having Philadelphia make a bid for the 2016 Olympics. I have no direct desire for that to happen, though it would almost certainly be a much more sensible option than Atlanta and Los Angeles were, or than New York would be.

However, if I thought there was some chance that such a thing would spur state lawmakers to get serious about some transit projects in the city in anticipation of the Olympics, as London is doing, I'd consider being on board. Still, given that screwing Philadelphia is pretty much SOP in this state I can imagine a lot of legislators doing just that so they could laugh at the city's failure.

On a mostly unrelated note, Hannah Miller tells you why you should vote for Anne Dicker.
