The Big Dig

A little of the complaint factory today - the never-ending City Hall "improvement project" is, well, never-ending. I moved into my apartment two years ago this week, and the work continues apace at the same volume, intensity, and frequency as before. That is to say, it's not unusual for me to wake up at 6 AM to a Caterpillar backing up incessantly. As I said to some friends last night, "The damn thing seems like it's always in reverse."

Public works projects are of course necessary, but I can't help but wonder (spurred on by a friend) if it's just contractors seeking to extend their project a little bit longer. Let's hope not. And of course, it could be worse. I could be the owner of Jersualem Garden...
