An angry note about a parking space in Inman Square in Cambridge.

Yesterday, some guy posted a note on a parking space he shoveled out on Tremont Street in Inman Square saying anybody was free to use it as long as they didn't attempt to claim it with a space saver - and that he would remove and throw out any space savers. He wrote it on orange paper, of course, to make it stand out.
