Christina couldn't help but notice this really tall turkey in Copley Square this afternoon:
It was the weirdest scene. Literally rehearsing a scene with a kid and a skateboard and sad turkey...

Johnmcboston spotted an enthusiastic reader at the Boston Book Festival in Copley Square today.
David Harris notes the advantage of having a Smart Car in the city (note that the perpendicular Smart Car is right in front of a behemoth Mini Cooper).
Buses have replaced trolleys between Park and Kenmore due to what appears to be a derailment at Copley Square.
Not long after the Johnson wing of the BPL's main library went up, the story goes, an old lady became forever trapped in the stairs that were the only way to get between the new and old wings. The new renovations have finally fixed that.
UPDATE: When I originally posted this, I thought this was just one of those urban legends. But it turns out an elderly woman actually did die in a BPL corridor, although not one connecting the two wings, in 1977.
This Dedham resident says he's been coming up to Copley Square since May to show his support for the Republican nominee. He says most people ignore him, some take his photo, some give him the finger and a few wave. As we spoke, a woman in her 30s came up to him with a big smile, exclaimed "I'm going to vote for Trump, too!" "Tell your husband!" he exhorted her, then started yelling to passersby, as the Opera Singer Guy continued to belt out a song about 40 feet away: "A million-dollar woman! We've got a million-dollar woman right here!"
The T reports "moderate" delays on the Green Line due to signal problems.
Jan is in Copley Square, where Kayem is giving out free hot dogs.
Alex Green can't say enough about the new non-dungeony insides:
A literary culture thrives on readers, and while our city has never lacked for those, it has gone long stretches with little in the way of public spaces in which they might feel inspired to gather. The Boston Public Libraryâ€™s newly renovated Johnson building, which opened on July 9, so successfully embraces and celebrates the idea of being a literary public space that it has the potential to fill that absence for good.
Madeline Donohue was walking down Boylston Street near Dartmouth around 7:30 p.m. when she noticed this Green Line emergency exit opened:
Alarms going off and no one is coming out.
Cara captured the scene in Copley Square where one cab driver rear-ended another.
The T is reporting the dreaded "severe" delays due to an inbound trolley that is now D for Deceased. Ryan Hatcher reports from Copley Square:
Conductor told people to get off "if they don't mind walking" due to a disabled train at Boylston.
Several hundred people gathered in front of Trinity Church in Copley Square tonight to vent their anger at the deaths in Orlando, but also to show their love for those hurting.
William, a drag performer who moved to Boston from Orlando last fall, recalled the four friends he had there who died, the four in critical condition and others who were shot. But as he tried to maintain his composure, he said, "if I preach one word today, it would be love." Read more.
