"Environmental" Councilor Can Be Made to Oppose Destruction of Green?
Bob La Trémouille reports:
The letter to the Cambridge Chronicle editor was published in the Chronicle on February 21, 2008.
The following Tuesday one of the usual Cambridge pol type groups held a meeting which discussed the Charles River.
In attendance were the local State Rep, State Senator and a city councilor who has run very beligerently as an environmentalist. The Rep, Walz, continued to support the environmental destruction at Magazine Beach. The Senator was willing to talk and the city councilor offered to allow constituents to talk him into opposing destruction of the Green at Magazine Beach.
I am reminded of an attempt by Peter Valentine, a very fine person and supporter of the Charles River White Geese, to interest the latest Cambridge Mayor in behaving responsibly on the Charles River. She flatly and simply ruled out any discussion of NOT indulging in heartless abuse of the Charles River White Geese.
An honest translation of her opinion:
HOW DARE YOU EXPECT ME TO REFRAIN FROM HEARTLESS ABUSE OF THE CHARLES RIVER WHITE GEESE. THEY ARE THE LITTLE GUY!!!
The ongoing destruction of thousands of healthy trees at Fresh Pond combines with the destruction of the homes of thousands of animals and the creation of homelessness for them.
That letter published in the Chronicle referred to the abuse of a guide dog in the lobby of the Cambridge Police Station by a rogue cop in a room containing other rogue cops who did nothing. The rogue cop on duty at the desk both did nothing and refused to accept a complaint concerning an outrage which occurred to his face.
A more accurate condemnation of the situation concerning animals in the City of Cambridge is that we have nine belligerent animal abusers who are proud of it except that they try to hide themselves to responsible people.
Those rogue cops in the police station lobby abusing the guide dog were implementing very sick policy coming straight from a truly reprehensible city government.
I have compared the current situation in the City of Cambridge to the stench I noticed when working with the Walsh law firm in the 80's. None of the people from the Walsh law firm who went to jail were jailed for bribery.
