    "It's easier to say that it's not our [US Democrats'] fault, but Russians' fault, say that they interfered with the elections... It reminds me of anti-Semitism, when everything is Jews' fault. Someone is a mutt, can't do a thing, but the Jews are to be blamed. But we know where such an attitude leads to, it never ends well"

    Who is they? Its not the City of Boston, it's John Henry, the owner of the team that wants to change the name of the street.

    It's Henry, Sam Kennedy, and Mayor Walsh. And to be clear, I am a 40+ year lifelong Red Sox fan.

    As long as it's not the Yankees.
    Something is always happening, but when it happens, people don't always see it, or understand it... or accept it.

    Ah, they would be Henry and Kennedy, owner and Ceo of the team, it was their idea, a business decision. Mayor Walsh merely said he would be open to the idea. You're just trying to use a business decision by the Red Sox to make the City of Boston look bad. And to be clear, I'm from Boston, and have apparently been a Red Sox fan longer than you've been alive. I know more about Boston and the kind of city it is than you think you do.

    Sorry, but it's been an issue for longer than Henry's statement the other day.

    So, you don't know what you are talking about. Again.

    Mayor Walsh merely said he would be open to the idea. You're just trying to use a business decision by the Red Sox to make the City of Boston look bad.
    No I am not. I loved Boston when I visited. Great city. Great food. I found the people at Fenway to be very good people.

    And to be clear, I'm from Boston, and have apparently been a Red Sox fan longer than you've been alive. I know more about Boston and the kind of city it is than you think you do.
    Then you should know this isn't the first attempt to rename Yawkey Way.

    Yeah, actually I do. I know its been an issue for a long, long time, its been an issue for the team and for some civic minded individuals who speak out about it, but not for the city.


    No I am not. I loved Boston when I visited. Great city. Great food. I found the people at Fenway to be very good people.

    Didn't say that it was, that was the inference you were making in saying that Boston is going nuts.
