Goddammit, who let this happen.
LA can host an Olympics in it's sleep with pretty close to $0 investment.

LA 2024’s plans for the 2024 Games projected a balanced $5.3 billion budget. That number is likely to increase for the 2028 Games, as are payments from the IOC.
I imagine they'll increase the fines on the homeless to make it to zero.

Still not looking forward to SoCal being overrun, as well as the security hassles, and considering it's the IOC we're talking about and LA gov't, they'll find a way to fleece the people. It is encouraging that it looks like the deal includes using existing facilities and not requiring them to go on as big a building spree as usual.

Vancouver had a $1 billion security budget for the Winter Olympics.

I doubt LA could get away with less than $5 billion for security for the Summer Olympics.

Let's ask the Los Angelinos among us: 2028 Olympics or North Korean nuke? Your choice.

FTR, LA is the only Olympic host in recent history to profit from the venture. Mostly because they're smart enough to use existing facilities instead of building white elephants. The Coliseum might win some sort of record by being used in 3 Olympics covering close to a century.
