Okay so now the big idea on the part of the Pro Olympics Faction

is to gin up a ballot initiation that'll give a public stamp of approval to their bid for sponsorship before the IOC. We should have expected something like this given the bad publicity engendered by the project these last few months. Sad to say this might well be their path to success, gaming a ballot initiative or just buying the referendum outright is well within the comfort zone of almost all concerned...and believe you me, they have the money and access to the political talent necessary to pull this off. It'll be casino gambling all over again, the antis have a base but no money and that almost never prevails when it comes to a ballot question where one side has plenty to spend. All I can say is that I hope whoever is counter-bidding us is pushing in all their chips, free hookers, free crystal meth...whatever it takes but please Ghod let this cup passeth Boston.
