You call this a world-class city? Walsh's treatment of Beacon Hill residents proves that a lie, she says

Karen Cord Taylor ponders why Mayor Walsh, who came into office with such promise and youthful vigor, is taking the side of a "dictatorial public works department that decided to destroy a city’s historic fabric with no consultation with a neighborhood" rather than listen to Beacon Hill residents who are only seeking to ensure handicap access ramps fit into the local millieu, like in Cambridge.

Boston leaders are always worried - is this city really world-class or not? City agencies that operate on a level of cheap, uninspired, unvetted solutions make it clear that Boston has a long way to go before it can be "world-class."

Not the sort of thing you want to find embedded in your car

A resident of Sherwood Street in Roslindale reports finding this bullet and a bullet hole in his car today.

However, he says it's possible the bullet came from nowhere near Roslindale:

Bullet was shot into the air, pierced the car on the way down!!! However, note the rust around the bullet hole itself. This could have happened days ago, & the car was on tour of the US. Mystery 4 eva.
