Steve reports finding a two-page leaflet on his front steps in South Boston yesterday from Boston 2024, extolling its new "fact-based plan for hosting the games" that will, of course, fix the T, create thousands of new jobs and housing units, lead to better bike lanes and mean more taxes for the city.
Jonathan Kamens reports he got a copy of the leaflet at his Brighton home, as well - the Brighton home, he notes, with the "No Soliciting" sign that specifically refers to no political leaflets.
West Roxbury and Dedham residents - joined by supporters from as far away as Bedford - briefly stopped traffic at the town line on Washington Street today to protest a high-pressure gas pipeline that would run from Westwood to Centre and Grove streets in West Roxbury.
Roughly 200 people marched from Gonzalez Field in Dedham Center to the town line by the car wash and the former Hess station to tell Algonquin Gas Transmission to find another route for the pipeline, which would run down Washington and Grove streets to a new transfer station across from the West Roxbury quarry - or to just cancel the project completely.
Dedham residents were concerned about the potential impact on Gonzalez Field and the town water supply:
As they massed on the sidewalk along Washington Street on either side of the line, protesters chanted "We need wind and solar fast, we don't want your fracking gas" and "Let's stop the Spectra pipe, people of Massachusetts unite."
