Gov. Mike Dukakis (a.k.a. Prof. MBTA) was going into the Dedham Costco this morning as I exited. I hailed him and of course had to be the jerk saying the obvious, that he arrived by car instead of public transit. He laughed and also said the obvious, that any combination of MBTA services would be arduous and time-consuming.
That gave him the segue into his communication with Costco management. He's been pitching a Boston store. He says he told them it would be well received and profitable. He pointed out that his daughter lives in San Francisco where she is only 10 minutes from an in-town Costco.
