Olympics Watch

Proponents of the 2024 Summer Games in Boston are pulling out the big guns: "Secretary of State John F. Kerry met Saturday in Switzerland with the International Olympic Committee's president, Thomas Bach, and discussed the unifying effect of the Games as well as Boston's bid to host them in 2024." Meanwhile: "The local Olympic bid committee says it will move forward ... only if a majority of the public shows support for the effort — and the panel would be open to a statewide referendum to accomplish that."
