Apparently the WBC may be at it again:
Bostonians can certainly be pig-headed, but they can also be wonderful. They drive like they're out of their minds but that is certainly not unique to them.
My son and I were trying to find the right train at one of the T stations, and my son began to cry because he thought we were lost. A guy came up to us with his fantastic Boston accent and helped us find the right train. He didn't just walk on by after seeing another human in distress, albeit minor.
Another time, my daughter and I were lost during our daring mission to get from Boston Eye and Ear Infirmary to St. Elizabeth Hospital. We were so lost we ended up at Harvard. We asked a police officer, who was quite amused at how far off we were. I was more interested in listening to him talk than actually listening to what he said that I didn't really get any good idea of which way to go. My daughter listened though, and we made it there alright. It was a pretty tense time because she had to see two specialists and have a rather unpleasant procedure done. That cop really saved the day.
Btw, whoever designed Boston must have been drinking way too much ale. It doesn't make any sense!
I agree with you about the not being surprised if someone got punched though. They're passionate people, and they've had enough.
It wasn't designed, it just growed, like many European towns of that time.

I think it's an Irish thing. We're a friendly lot.
Funny... god hates cigarette marriage... nice huh. Such bigots! It's so sickening that people can actually be this stupid! Not ignorant, because ignorant can be taught... but there is absolutely no cure for stupid.
You know, it actually took me a second to realise your cigarette comment was a pun on "fags" which is what we Brits call cigarettes. Bloody hell, I'm becoming 'mericanized! Hayulp!!
I used to do doubletakes in chat on another board when this one particular English woman would say "I am going to go have a fag." I knew what she meant but how many fellow yanks would be thrown by that and want to a) condemn her for using the word and b) inform her that "fags" just don't swing that way?
Believe me, I deal with Massholes every weekend. They come up here to go to the White Mountains or Lake Winnepesauke and drive obnoxiously. We do love their tourism money though. .
It is only a matter of time before someone does a drive-by on the WBC clowns.
What I find surprising is that it hasn't happened yet.
"What I find surprising is that it hasn't happened yet."
Well if anyone is going to shoot them It'll be a believer and the WBC have all the believers on their side. So their safe.
Thats what i think anyway,
Thus is one instance where I expect the WBC loonies to back down and stay home. It's one thing for them to picket amidst war veterans or outlaw bikers; it's quite another for them to put their lives at the mercy of of angry Bostonians.
