Re: DOT Parcels 25, 26, 27, 28 Kneeland Street

For public servants, criminal negligence gets bumped down to 'incompetence.'

The mass.gov trying to fleece developers + the neighborhood extortion process is why we don't have a successful air rights project started since 1982. We're likely to miss our 2nd consecutive cycle.... A city this size with this much economic activity lagging behind peer cities with no late-night subway service is a sign of a serious problem. Christ, even Philadelphia, with considerably less to work with, and more social problems than Boston has late night subway service.

To further prove how extra-stupid & crooked our state government continues to be, they haven't set in place a stimulus plan to get these build sites decked for the first air-rights project, then structure the sale + anticipated business activity to pay for the decking of the next one, and so-on. We will probably lose another 20~30 years because the priority to work with Boston and developers remains PR based instead of results based.

We continue to fail to get decking over the Pike, or actually build the Northern Avenue bridge, or extend subway service, etc, etc, because the state is still run by a bunch of useless idiots. And i'm being nice not to call them criminals for returning so little to the taxpayers besides their continued incompetence.

The only thing that could be worse is if we elected a marxist, feminist-maniac imbecile like Elizabeth Warren to higher office.

Warren isn't a Marxist (you obviously know nothing about Marx), and isn't a "feminist-maniac" (you obviously know nothing about feminism, or psychosis). Your height-worshipping rants are bad enough, but can you please keep the alt-right garbage off of this architecture forum?

Sir,

that would require forward thinking.

Warren is an alt-left neo-marxist loon and an epic scumbag that deserves censure.

She recently called for the cutting up of Repubilcan's bodies.

not really a new low for her, REALLY. just business as usual.

Re: Open Thread

Crying a puddle or a river won't be necessary.

CNN isn't a law enforcement agency, (much less an actual news agency, imho).

but it's quite possible they'll be hearing from law enforcement soon.
