Visibility 373, Good Guys and Bad Guys

Bob La Trémouille reports:

1. Visibility 363, November 11, 2008.

2. Good guys, Brighton, 11/11/08.

3. Bad guys, Cambridgeport, 11/12/08.

1. Visibility 363, November 11, 2008.

I was at the BU Bridge / Destroyed Nesting Area during rush hour.

Apparently because of the Veteran's Day holiday, traffic was down severely.

Percentage of takes on leaflets was up dramatically. It looked like I was meeting a lot of new people who were quite interested.

2. Good guys, Brighton, 11/11/08.

I went from the BU Bridge to the Green Streets meeting in Brighton.

These well meaning people spent an hour seeking a very minimal level of green space.

The sort of green space they are fighting for, Cambridge City Councilors routinely destroy, either because mature trees are in the middle of saplings or because the City Councilors change zoning to allow construction to the sidewalk.

3. Bad guys, Cambridgeport, 11/12/08.

The DCR was in Cambridgeport last night.

It is constantly amazing to see them contradicting themselves. There is no reality when words have no meaning.

The most important comment was that Corsi claims to support lawns to the Charles when appropriate. Last night, he claimed to think that Magazine Beach is not appropriate.

Fascinating, now his beloved Charles River Master Plan, according to him, seems to be a flat out lie when it calls for a lawn to the Charles at Magazine Beach and no bizarre wall of introduced designer bushes.

We are dealing with people who very consistently say what will work to get this particular audience happy.
