An underground artist left a message in the grime of what used to be the white wall of an Orange Line train that sighed to one more stop at the end of the line at Forest Hills.
(yes, I know, different song)
Can someone print this up as a T-shirt and distribute them to Gov. Baker and about 90% of the state legislature?
Patrick nailed what would happen if Mass Transportation reverted back to its old cronyism days. The Gov rejected Pollack each time she applied for the secretary position under him, stating she would focus all of her attention on CLF projects and forget about everything else. Look at where we are today. Prophet Deval.
apologies from you again.
It is what they are doing.
If you want to fix something, you put someone in charge and give him or her the budget he or she needs to get the job done.
If you want to look like you're fixing something without actually doing the work, you hire a committee.
House Speaker Robert DeLeo deserves a lot of the blame, too. He's nothing but a self-serving careerist.
But he has good hair.
If you were elected governor in 2016, how would you have gotten the 40 year old Orange Line cars replaced by now?
Did not walk into this problem in 2016. He screwed the Tin the 90s by saddling it with the debt from the bigdig.
Why isn't anyone talking about that??
...and DeLeo has been Speaker since 2009. There's no excuses for these clowns.
DeLeo is a woefully inadequate Speaker.
But assuming you won’t change your subject, what could Baker have done when he took office that would have lead to all of the Orange Line trains being replaced by now?
Maybe not piled billions of debt on the MBTA in the 1990s?
Just the late delivery of the orange line cars? Good news then, should be fixed by mid-summer!
Artist? Now that's an interesting characterization.
I spent my insomnia time last night trying in vain to place the lyric, something I've heard maybe 500 times? Still couldn't get it. I knew the next part was something like, " ... concert halls!"
For those of you too young, it's a lyric from the Simon & Garfunkel song, "Sound of Silence" and is also a lyric (slight change) in the Rush song, "The Spirit of Radio".
Simon & Garfunkel: "For the words of the prophets were written on the subway walls, and tenement halls... and echo with the sound of silence."
Rush: "For the words of the prophets are written on the studio wall, and concert halls.... and echo with the sound... of salesmen."
The Rush version is: "For the words of the profits".
