    Forgive me, but I'm a little suspicious of anything which ranks places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Bahrain in the Top-Ten-Anything-Containing-the-Word-Freedom catagory.

    You might be able to do anything you want economically speaking - but if you spit on the sidewalk, try to gather more than 5 people to protest or look at a woman sideways, you're going to lose an arm or an eye.

    Obviously I would love for us to have the Economic Wealth of those places, but I would not trade the freedom to speak my mind for it.

    If you actually READ the post, I wrote CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION OR IN SITE CLEARING PROCESS.

    I could have listed 5,000 buildings that were "already built".

    But if you want to continually hijack this thread, I'd be more than happy to continue schooling you on the unprecedented building boom in Boston.

    It's all up to the mods if they want to allow you to continue your hijacking - - I'll play along!
