Reality and Scurrilous Attacks on the Charles River White Geese, communication to Michael Sullivan, 2001.

Reality and Scurrilous Attacks on the Charles River White Geese, communication to Michael Sullivan, 2001.

In my report of earlier today, I commented on scurrilous comments made about the Charles River White Geese.

Here is a communication to Michael Sullivan of November 19, 2001 concerning this vile behavior.  It is an electronic copy of my file copy.

The group with the scurrilous comment mentioned in the letter changed its name after Friends of the White Geese discredited them.  The former name was “Friends of Magazine Beach”.  The more recent name is a blatantly false name, the “Charles River ‘Conservancy’.”

“MDC” is the then acronym for Metropolitan District Commission.

The legislature showed its contempt for the MDC by subsequently merging it into the Department of Conservation and Recreation.  Regrettably, the “planning” people of the MDC certainly have since looked like they dominate the DCR.

The ONLY public complaint on the record was requested by the MDC from this fake group.

And based on this, they have been deliberately starved.


Dear Councillor Sullivan:

This is a follow-up to our discussions early in the City Council meeting of this evening.

I made an inaccurate statement which should be clarified.  The following expands the statement.  Should you wish to have the name inserted either Marilyn or I will be pleased to provide it, the name can also be provided off the website.

If you want the name, I think it will be very clear that my FIRST report on last night’s City Council which will follow shortly hereafter is moderate.

This is a copy of an email provided to a person who has been active in the cause of the Charles River White Geese.


There are a few things you should be aware of that we have not pushed as hard as we should on the killings.

First of all, the MDC, early on after they started the environmental destruction, spoke of a lot of complaints on the geese.

Marilyn, in a Freedom of Information request, demanded all the complaints that were the basis of that comment

They delivered one, from the fake environmental organization which was the City of Cambridge and Councilor Davis’ point entity in the attacks on the Charles River, the so-called “Friends of Magazine Beach.”  They also delivered a letter from the MDC asking for that letter.  The letter was submitted about 11 or 12 months after this organization first presented the City of Cambridge’s plans to develop the Charles, plans which, essentially, have become the MDC’s plans.

There has been two members of this group particularly virulent in their hatred of the geese.  One is a nut who lives on Putnam Avenue and who has put irresponsible letters in the Cambridge Chronicle.  The other is XXXXXXXX who is a joiner and who kayaks on the Charles River.

The letter from this group, among other things, proposed that all but eight of the gaggle be killed and that there be an annual killing to keep them down to eight.  Barrios picked up on this concept in his August 2, 2000, Cambridge Chronicle letter.  He just called it “humane” treatment.

The first disappearance was at the end of March.  She was the left hand nester of two geese nesting under the trees by the tracks.  Both had strongly yelled at me when I went around feeding them.  When this one was disappeared, the other was scared shitless.

I reported the disappearance by cell phone to Marilyn standing on the railroad tracks.  As I did, I was interrupted by five geese on the steep embankment which supports the tracks, directly opposite the empty nest.  They were yelling at the river.  I have never seen such a grouping of geese in that location at any other time and I have never seen a grouping of geese standing yelling at the river at any other time.

I think they were telling me that she was killed / abducted by a person on the river, perhaps a person who was there when they were yelling.

The first found dead goose was impailed, as I believe you are aware.  Could this have been done with an implement normally carried on a boat, on a kayak?

At the beginning of this week, Marilyn reported to me a photo by XXXXXXX at www.state.ma.us/dfwele/River/rivwatertown.htm with a caption, calling them  “Problem geese.”  I filed an objection with the webmaster on the comment not long thereafter.  The latest killing occurred not long after my complaint to the webmaster, after a hiatus of several months in killings.

I do not believe in coincidences of this sort.

Michael Sullivan, DA Candidate - Don’t blame the victim? His attacks on the Charles River White Geese.

Elaborating on the mocked and vilified comment in the report, please see the follow on at http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/.

The bureaucrats lied of complaints against the Charles River White Geese.  On a freedom of information demand, there was exactly one complaint, issued by the Charles River "Conservancy" under its original name in direct response to a request for a comment by the bureaucrats.

The Charles River “Conservancy” has graduated from heartless animal abuse to being the principal instigator of the $20 million for destruction of hundreds of trees and associate environment, with key lies, of course.



Michael Sullivan, DA Candidate - Don’t blame the victim?  His attacks on the Charles River White Geese.

Michael Sullivan is a former member of the Cambridge City Council, currently running for district attorney for the county in which Cambridge sits.

He has put on a radio ad, prominently featuring the language “Don’t blame the victim.”

That brings to memory the vile pitch of the Cambridge Machine when Sullivan and the Cambridge City Council commenced their heartless abuse of the Charles River Geese at Magazine Beach playing fields on the Charles River.

The victim, the Charles River White Geese, beloved by normal people, normal commuters, and decent humans who love the Charles River was mocked and vilified by people friendly to the Cambridge City Council.

So, naturally, when it serves his purpose, Sullivan cries out: “Do not blame the victim.”

A neighbor of his tried to get some decency out of him.  Not a sign of decency, and a clear acknowledgement of who was on the attack against beautiful, valuable now 33 year residents of the Charles River.

The Cambridge City Council allocated a budget of about $1.5 million for the outrageous project on Magazine Beach.  The Department of Conservation and Recreation also put in money.

The Charles River White Geese were a beloved part of nature at Magazine Beach, grazing on its excellent, natural, non poison fed grass, and sleeping there on in the adjacent Charles River, except in bad weather on during mating season, when they went to the now Destroyed Nesting Area.

They are still a beloved part of the Charles River to folks walking across the BU Bridge looking down at the hovel to which Sullivan and his accomplices heartlessly confined them without food.

Sullivan’s response to his neighbor communicated total lack of empathy for his beautiful, beloved victims.  The comments of the Cambridge Machine were decidedly rotten.  Then again, this was part of the vile goals of the Department of Conservation and Recreation: to kill off or drive away all animals residing on the Charles River.

This contemptuous treatment of these excellent animals displays a mentality which strikes me as unfit for a law enforcement officer / district attorney.

Oh, and he also destroyed the excellent, non poison fed grass at the Magazine Beach playing fields.  He destroyed all of this grass which survived the better part of a Century and replaced it with sickly stuff which requires poisons to keep alive.

Oh, the big pitch on the destruction was that they wanted to improve the playing fields.  They decreased the size of the playing fields to put in expensive drains to drain off the poisons.

The DCR promised a lawn to the river.  So naturally, the lie of a lawn to the river because a wall of introduced vegetation which blocked access to Magazine Beach from the river and starved the Charles River White Geese.

That wall of introduced vegetation has been allowed to grow and grow and grow.  All other bordering vegetation on the Charles River has routinely been destroyed twice a year.

If you are dealing with honorable, decent people, the outrage at Magazine Beach is easy to correct.

All you have to do is chop down that bizarre wall twice a year like all other bordering vegetation on the Charles River basin.  And leave plenty of large openings for easy access so that the wall becomes what was promised in the usual lie: A lawn to the river.

All you have to do is stop spending money on poisons and spend it on seeds for the excellent grass which was so sickly destroyed.

Instead, we have one of the people who funded this outrage running for District Attorney in the county where Cambridge sits, crying about his concern for victims.

Strange, I beautiful victims confined to their Destroyed Nesting Area without food and see one of the people starving them making noises like a member of the Cambridge City Council.  He is concerned about victims.

Listen to his lovely words.  Do not look at the beautiful victims whom he has so heartlessly attacked, and the attacks have not abated.  Rather his followers on the DCR and the Cambridge City Council are making things much worse through their vile plans.  One of the guys in the middle of the vile plans is running for Lieutenant Governor.
