The shoe drops

Have walked by the Prospect Street Site twice a day for several years now. Before 9/11, my thoughts were, oh what a nice job they did cleaning up a cinderblock building in a not so hot part of the city. After 9/11, I wondered what could be going on there - but good, indoctrinated Cantabridgian that I can be, I immediately chided myself for racism and intolerance. Over the last year and a half, my thoughts turned to wondering if anyone was looking into the funding and other goings on at the ISB and when the shoe would drop regarding that.

It totally doesn't surprise me that the Globe (NYT subsidiary) wouldn't have much of anything if anything at all on this. I haven't heard much of anything regarding this on NPR, either, for that matter - but that could just be my sporadic listening habits.

It's really upsetting to see my...our goodwill abused like this. I don't like having to look with mistrust at my neighbors. At the sweeties (illegal, it's been admitted to me. The advantages of being a francophone) who'd give me a box of beignets Dunkin' avec mon cafe matinal. Or at the gentlemen who for the longest time would escort me to my street from the T in Eastie.
