    No thanks to Romney, when the "big dig" tunnel had financial problems, ther won't be a rail connection between North and South Stations, unless you take the subway. Even that requires a chnage of trains, unless your smart enough to connect via Back Bay, NOT South Station, via the Orange Line.

    I've cut off the thought of voting for Mitt. Wake me up when it's November. I'm tuning out this year, it's all complaining, no solutions.
