Shaughnessy: Is demise of Boston 2024 good or bad?


The Boston 2024 Olympics bid was swiftly put to rest Monday.

That's it. It's over. 

So is it good or bad for the city of Boston?

"We’re free at last. It was a terrible idea, the worst idea since Bob Kraft taking the Patriots to Hartford," Dan Shaughnessy said. "It was never going to happen. There were only two groups of people in favor of this, naive people and people who stand to gain something. 

"There’s a spirit of volunteerism required for these things and we don’t have that either. They were going to build and take down a stadium? It was preposterous from the jump."
