Not that I was thinking of leaving LJ during the uproars last year, but I’m quite impressed with the policy communication here.
So Erich calls me on my commute into work this morning to tell me that the J. Hook fishery building in Boston burnt to the ground last night. 7 alarm fire, despite being literally RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from the largest fire station in Boston.
The J. Hook building is next door to my office. Only thing between us is the crosswalk for Seaport Ave.
I get to the city, and I can smell the smoke at South Station.
I get to my office, and there are still 10 trucks and a fireboat on the scene. The entire building is gutted, still smouldering heavily, and the center is collasped.
Yet my office is still open.
I’m sending some photos from my phone to my email… will get them uploaded. And maybe will snatch some of the ones from fellow employees on our shared drive. My photos and some of my co-workers’ photos from our office reception area here.
I’m going to miss their lobster rolls and crab cakes. ;(
Now… hopefully those god-forsaken laws across the country that were voted in recently will start falling for the bigoted throwback they are. Welcome on board, California!
Saw this on sebsational‘s journal, and just had to share… he’s right. I’m not quite sure how to respond either, other than to stop and listen to that violinist whose notes soared at Porter Square station years ago.
