Building (1)
This building
. I shot this on Kodachrome in September 1989 (or so the slide was dated, so it could have been August or September), but I don't recognize it at all. In those two months I was in the Boston area, with one trip to Providence and a trip to Maine. So this building might be in Rhode Island, but Boston area is just as likely. Maine is not likely, because I went there for the camping, mostly. I never explored the architecture of the cities. I don't know what those foils on the facade do, if they're functional at all. If you recognize this building, please leave a comment below.

Boston Fools

These two guys went out riding on a semi-frozen stretch of the Charles River in Allston, a neighborhood of Boston. The Charles does not freeze over solid every year, but some years it does. Judging from the conditions in the parking lot alone, it was not cold enough for the river to freeze to a safe thickness. A better place to try this would have been in the Charles River Basin, that is the area from around the BU Bridge downstream to the dam by North Station. These guys were further upstream where there is still a significant current.

Even if they had ignored all the warning signs, just a look at the ice itself should have told them it was unsafe, and they seemed to be trying to ride as close to open water as they could.

Elected Officials Surprised When They Pull Their Heads Out Of Their Asses

People are up in arms for obvious reasons after the Oakley Union Elementary School District Board of Trustees revealed their contempt for their constituents, but no one seems to have noticed that in addition to being assholes, they were conducting an illegal meeting by discussing possible restrictions on future public comments. Those who resist resigning should be hit with Brown Act violations.
