Poop on North End's Diamonds; Harvard's Burning Ears; More!

NORTH END—Shit just keeps happening on the neighborhood's ball fields and parks, despite residents' best efforts: "Spoke to another woman who says she walks her dog here everyday. She showed me the paper towel she uses to pick up. As we discussed how poop is still leftover once picked up she told me sometimes she picnics on the field and has to move because of the dog poop smell. After our nice chat she stayed on the field walking her dog for ten more minutes. Poop on the diamond." [NorthEndWaterfront]
CAMBRIDGE—Harvard students are not patriarchal, do they make themselves clear? Say yes. "A sign encouraging construction workers to 'Show Respect for Harvard' has been taken down following student protest. The sign was posted by Shawmut Design and Construction at the construction site on the Science Center plaza and contained both Shawmut and Harvard logos." [Crimson]

CAMBRIDGE—Some called it hideous, history has called it groundbreaking: "Gerhard Michael Kallmann, the architect who won the competition to design Boston City Hall in 1962, died on Tuesday morning at his Cambridge, Mass., home. He was 97." [Architect]
