Today the Boston Globe editorial page wrote an opinion about the Boston Common and their improvement fund. See it at:
Their opinion could have been lifted from my blog. They wonder why Boston doesn't fund their parks as adequately as other cities. We can blame this on Mayor Menino and the Council that approves his budget. They also wonder why the Park Ranger staff is down. As I reported, the Parks Personnel staff is up, so why they cut Park Rangers maybe a better question for the Council to ask.
Finally, and most importantly, they realize that the Boston Common Improvement Fund should be a non-starter and makes no sense.
I hope that the council will drop their idea for another hack filled non-profit, and focus solely on improving the Boston Common experience.
