    Coronavirus and its Impacts on Urbanism

    There are legitimate mechanisms for funding projects like the Kennedy Center. Politically-motivated pork attachments, especially to a critical humanitarian aid bill, is not one of them. It is a practice that always smells bad. That was such a great scene, loved MM. Thanks for the memory, however...

    Coronavirus and its Impacts on Urbanism

    Agreed. It's pretty sad though that nothing-whatsoever-to-do-with-covid pork from both sides was added ($25 million for the DC Kennedy Performing Arts Center?). If a clean bill can't be passed at a time like this it will never happen. Where are you line item veto? Onto the House...

    A Tale of Two Chambers. Reaction to the just-passed Senate version of the coronavirus stimulus bill. From the Huffington Post “The emergency coronavirus legislation that the Senate agreed to on Tuesday can only be described as an outrage. It is not an economic rescue package, but a sentence of...

    Coronavirus and its Impacts on Urbanism

    Possible derailment Re-orienting the manufacture of most of our drug supply from China, the origin of this outbreak as well as bird flu and SARS, and ramping up domestic production is somehow misguided or not achievable so why bother? Multinational Big Pharma and the Communist Chinese government...

    COVID-19 in Boston

    It's obvious you're twisting around what I've said to fit your own bias and completely ignoring what is actually there. Have at it.

    COVID-19 in Boston

    George, please show where I specified social distancing was an ineffective strategy. You’ll save yourself time and effort not looking though because it was never said—it may very well be that it and the other protocols are the most effective possible. What I have been saying is that something...

    COVID-19 in Boston

    Who am I to question anything? I have a stake in this just like you and everyone else on the planet so yeah questions should be asked about how something as destructive as this is being handled. Is there 100%, across-the-board agreement among epidemiologists? If not are the challengers to the...

    COVID-19 in Boston

    I have never said and I have never heard anyone say “the economy is more important”. This is not an either/or, mutually exclusive situation of mostly saving patients or mostly saving the economy. This battle has 2 fronts and both need to be fought aggressively.

    COVID-19 in Boston

    I knew there would be some knee-jerk flack for daring to question the worst case scenarios and whether current strategy is the right thing to do or should there be re-evaluations and re-adjustments but some of these comments are just a bit much. There has to be a willingness to consider...

    COVID-19 in Boston

    The country (the world) is rapidly going scorched-earth policy in what could be a well-intentioned but very misguided containment effort. These efforts seem to be guided in large part by the doomsday, near-end-of-the-world speculations of Imperial College. How are they qualified to be apocalypse...

    Cambridge Infill and Small Developments

    In the same neighborhood as 92-94 Howard, could be the same developer/architect. Only criticism is that the windows seem a bit small and a bit too few and in this case the front door opens right onto the sidewalk.
