Is This The New “Common”wealth?

The talking head on our local news broadcast announced it as if it were just an everyday thing – no big deal. I however, nearly fell out of my chair.

Apparently the City of Boston is considering – seriously – opening a portion of the Copley Branch for retail.  Don’t believe it? Neither could I, so here’s a link to the Herald report and the Boston Business Journal report. The overall reaction seems positive “as long as it’s tastefully done.”

Is there no end to the commercialization of our public and shared resources?
