Menino Woos Wegmans; Boston's Building 'Refuseniks'

BOSTON—George Thrush puts those standing athwart the city's wave of development on the couch: "These refuseniks aren’t interested in what you or I think is best for the city. They’re hell-bent on blocking anything a developer puts in front of them. Crazy as it sounds, in one of the nation’s largest cities, a few local characters who regularly show up at public meetings somehow have the power to completely derail major projects." [Boston Mag]

DOWNTOWN CROSSING—Mayor Menino did his thing, calling Wegmans C.E.O. Danny Wegman a few hours after the latter mentioned he might bring an outlet to Boston. Hizzoner also dialed Google when it looked like it might leave Cambridge. It didn't. [Herald]
