Cities Sarah Palin Won't Be Visiting

Boston, Massachusetts, a town for lovers of science.

I haven't been to Boston since they finished up the Big Dig. Probably one of the better bits of timing in my life was moving out of the area around the time they started the project. I loved Boston, though it was a really good idea to stay out of Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan, unless being mugged, raped, stabbed and/or shot was your idea of a fun evening. There is no system to the streets and it never made sense that West Roxbury is nowhere near Roxbury.

The downtown is very walkable and is of a human scale, unlike, say, Manhattan. The T is a great way to get around.

Government Center
, though, is an architectural atrocity. The building couldn't be any uglier if they had built Berlin Wall style machinegun towers at its corners.

If we're lucky, Palin will stay happy in her role as Queen of Alaska.

DCap, no, not at all. Downtown Boston, though, is a very walkable city. Manhattan is huge by comparison.
