The small, quiet suburban town of Foxborough has successfully fought Robert Kraft and Steve Wynn (two Goliashs) and scuttled the planned megacasino across from the stadium. This behemoth would have ruined our peaceful town in so many ugly ways, and the voters turned out en masse to voice their opposition.
I felt proud that I had blogged, posted on the website, held a placard and made telephone calls. Not much, but every person contributed in some way to the defeat of the casino.
I was so happy when I heard the news. Citizens can still be an effective voice in a democracy. As the late great Mayor Daley (the original one) used to say, "The people have spoken."
