Burden of Too Many Tributes Fells Tree in Cambridge MA

At the intersection of Chilton Street and Concord Avenue, there are three tribute markers for prominent Cambridge residents. It is a way for the Cambridge City Council to honor citizens who contributed to the greatness of the city. But they usually reserve an entire intersection for one person naming it the person's square. In this case there are three markers. Perhaps that burden caused a large nearby tree to fall down. Included is a sign restricting traffic with the unstated exception for Harvard vehicles. For Harvard in Massachusetts laws are optional.

Parking In a Fire Zone: Do You Know Who I Am?

This shows the rear of two residential buildings owned and operated by The President and Fellows of Harvard College. With clearly displayed Fire Lane No Parking signs five VIPs park their cars on September 13, 2011 at about 2:30 PM creating a barrier for exiting these buildings in case of an emergency. It also blocks emergency workers from entering the buildings to help evacuate the residents. Curiously the Harvard Fire Safety Services group conducted a four day test of their new fire alarm for these buildings on September 6-9, 2011. The following week on Friday September 16, 2011 the control box for one of the buildings emitted an audible alarm indicating on its display panel "System Trouble."

How To Make a Curb

Cambridge MA has one of the few real shovel ready jobs in the United States. Here you can see what it takes to make a curb on Concord Avenue near the Fresh Pond Mall at Fresh Pond Parkway. You may wonder how much each of these stimulus jobs cost, but whats the difference? It is the Spending Other People's Money Society in action.

Cranes and Shovels, A Concert

[Comments by public officials and public figures are not exact quotes but represent the spirit of what they might say.]

After intense extensive and sometimes rancorous negotiations between Harvard University's Office of Government and Community Affairs and the Cambridge City Council Harvard "is delighted" (their words) to give back to the community by providing daily concerts six days per week. They will all be free and open to the public. Members of the community can see and hear the concerts along Prescott Street near Broadway, along Broadway from Prescott Street to Quincy Street and along Quincy Street. Fortunate tenants of Harvard Real Estate can see and hear them from their own apartments. Each day six days per week into 2013 Harvard will contribute to the quality of life of the area. [The concert herein was performed on Tuesday September 13, 2011 at about 2:30 PM.] Councilor Ken Reeves a Harvard alum said, "It shows the diversity and concern of Harvard to make Cambridge a better place. Senior citizens can enjoy quality cultural activities in the neighborhood." He added, "Who needs gambling casinos, when you have world class sidewalk cafes?" Councilor Henrietta Davis expressed glee saying "Harvard makes the environment cleaner and a more harmonic place to live. This will be referred to the Ordinance Committee for further study." Councilor Leland Cheung said, "I'm happy to help Harvard bring meaningful ways of love for the community." Councilor Denise Simmons asked, "When will Harvard provide concerts in Area 4?" She added, "If you are not on the right train, you can't be sure where you will be tomorrow." Mayor David Maher wondered "Will there be emotional counselors available for those who are sensitive to intense concerts." Councilor Craig Kelley asked "Will the police details be distributed equally to all officers without regard to seniority?" Councilor Margery Decker asked "Will undocumented workers be allowed to attend these free concerts without showing picture IDs? Are all musicians in the Cambridge Musicians Union?" she asked. Councilor Toomey raised a point of information saying "If you listen carefully these concerts are not necessarily an improvement." Councilor Seidel suspended the rules and stated, "Harvard is to be congratulated on its openness and transparency which inspires the community to participate in more events of this kind. I agree with my colleague that Harvard increases diversity and cohesiveness with these concerts." The City Manager suggested, "The Council should make the concerts unanimous." City Solicitor Drisdell said he would get back to the Manager about state laws on unanimity.
Speaking for Harvard Mary Power said "I'm willing to meet with city officials or any other members of the community who want to discuss this further. A lot of thought and planning went into these concerts," she added.
Local attorney and council critic Robert LaTremouille said, "These bad people and fake environmentalists continue to ignore the white geese. When will Harvard give concerts at the BU bridge?"
