|The mayor in Mussolini mode.|
Dear Mayor Menino:
I am a long-time Boston resident and have always been a supporter of yours but I swear I will never vote for you again if you clear Dewey Square of Occupy Boston.
Instead of threatening the "occupiers," you should be engaging with them in an effort to develop an effective political action plan for their cause, so that eventually the physical occupation itself will be irrelevant.
Suppressing what is essentially a valid protest of a society's inequities only and always ensures that said protest will return in a more violent form.
I urge you to reconsider your ultimatum.
PS - If you care about the future of your country, it would be a good idea to go down to Dewey Square tonight.
