Never heard of this guy, though it might be a piece about amazon in the seaport, or how that area is developing.It amazes me that so many Bostonians are angry that Boston embraced to expansion and 'big city feel' outward to these blocks that for so long had fallen into disrepair (waterfront or not).
These angry folks also overlook that the Seaport is probably sparked the renaissance of Ft Pt Channel.
What inspires the hate? i'm hardly qualified to ponder urban mob psychology (yes, i too-often insinuate that i do); Is it envy, or just deep rooted provincialism, small thinker-ism, mistrust of development 'tycoons' & big business, political hacks, Brahmins, leftist loons that cross classes, race, color, creed.... or a combination of all of the above??
Channeling my inner Corolla......
you have a lazy simplistic and misguided view on why people might not be happy about the economic divide in America, much like the fella in the video.i've long suspected (Envy) to be a main ingredient the stew of all the hate for the Seaport.... Tom O'Brien's bullcrap the other day pretty much was the last straw! Quite contrarily: i think Adam Corolla develops the thesis fairly well--and for much of the Nimby Goonsquad in the Globe, the shoe crudely fits.
