Crushing Of Dissent In Boston

The owner of a pizza shop across from the FleetCenter is furious that the city has asked him to take down a banner he’s erected across from the FleetCenter supporting President George W. Bush.


Now, the city building inspector told him to remove the banner or face a fine. The inspector said Pasquale never got a permit for it.


Pasquale refuses to remove the banner.

He’s not sure what the fine will be, but he said he’d rather pay it than take the sign down.

Sam Adams would be proud. The Boston bureaucracy should be ashamed. Here’s the link.
