The MBTA is running shuttles between Lechmere and North Station due to a trolley that had some sudden issues getting power down from the wires. Here are some T workers doing some emergency repairs to the trolley as it sits on the viaduct.
I've heard out-of-towners call it letch-meer (rhymes with fetch) but lech-mare? Really?
How about "Time to grab another beer …"
Has anyone noticed that on the local nightly news instead of high speed car chases we get a daily dose of the latest T fiasco with pissed off passengers doing the walk of shame as they are being evacuated. The only political leader in this state who dares discuss the disaster known as the T is Michelle Wu who should run for Mayor or Governor. She clearly cares about her city and the residents who need better public transportation.
The Lechmere Viaduct was given some money for an overhaul. Then it was transferred to "other needs" The way things are going in Mass. The GLX will open the same day the Viaduct falls into the Charles
for when there's an actual bear on the tracks.
I would change "bear" to "hear".
I've always pronounced Lechmere as "leech-mere", which is the way the name of the defunct retail chain of the same name was pronounced.
Or maybe I should've figured out how to use "beer" in the headline instead.
Perhaps one finally reached Saskatoon:
