Dan Kennedy, on the nightmare that will be the Democratic Convention in Boston:
“You could look it up (I don’t feel like it), but Media Log has predicted on at least several occasions that this July’s Democratic National Convention will be a five-alarm disaster for anyone who lives in, works in, or even thinks about Boston.
“Yet now that Anthony Flint is reporting in today’s Boston Globe that operations to shut down I-93 each day will begin as early as 4 p.m., I’m ready to make a counterintuitive prediction. I now think everyone has been so thoroughly freaked out by months of apocalyptic scenarios (can I take just a little bit of credit?) that everyone is going to take the week off and the locals are going to barricade themselves inside their homes.”
