Schools and health, too

Keywords Opinion

Wouldn’t it be great if a city’s bid to host the Super Bowl [Sept. 9] took into account the quality of the city’s public schools; the overall health of its residents; how the city treats the homeless; air and water quality; a living wage for it hospitality workers; access to grocery stores; the age of its sewers; ability to manage natural disasters (like floods); safe streets, and so on?

Maybe cities would then have an incentive to focus on the needs of the residents.
