    Proposed Boston flood barrier

    YIMBY or YIYBY? However, plowing ahead uninformed may not result in an actual solution. Yes, I remember 1976 but I wasn't born in 2006. Listen to the old people, they know from experience how the best of intentions can go terribly wrong

    Proposed Boston flood barrier

    You don't have to listen but this blaming of the locals cuz they is dum is tiresome. This, like a lot of things, is far more complicated than that

    Proposed Boston flood barrier

    You have 3 freshwater rivers draining into the same harbor. The change in salinity will obliterate the wildlife in the harbor and destroy its natural defenses. Goodbye marshes at Belle Isle and the Neponset River Estuary, goodbye game fish like striped bass. Hello dependence on machines. It may...

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    The trolley should be a single subway fare with a transfer. Back in the day it was free to and from Ashmont. Having either of those might help with ridership.

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    That's how the story goes I guess; blame the locals. But that is all we are hearing. Isn't it great that the PCC's are still alive on that funky little line on the edge of town? Isn't it awesome that it is actually a cheaper option than the bus?
