Burning Desire

A tipster alerted us to this urban-planning idea from Deadspin's Drew Magary. It seems Magary was chatting about the economy with a former U.S. senator, who noted that the U.K. created a lot of jobs rebuilding London post-Blitzkrieg. That gave him an idea: "We should pick an American city (let's say Boston, because it sucks), then we should have it evacuated, and then we should BLOW IT TO SHIT. Then everyone comes back and rebuilds the city, only this time with high-speed catwalks and lots of lasers all over the place. We'll all be rich again. I swear it could work." What say you? [Deadspin]
