Re Pan Am Games vs. sewers, part of the problem is that politicians like to throw money around to build new things (exciting! innovative! groundbreaking!) but don't like to sink money into maintaining or repairing things already in the ground (booooring!) so there's alot of momentum for a shiny stadium (or, coughcough, a shiny new highway) but not alot of momentum for sewers and stormwater drains hidden under the road. Their only noticable when they break, otherwise there out of sight out of mind.
