An ex-legislator using the power of the budget as leverage against an independent agency? Perish the thought!
... Mayor Menino is spending big bucks
to upgrade City Hall. But he's plowing ahead on building a new Government Center
on the waterfront. Plans for the waterfront have now gone from: 1.) Building a new exciting Back Bay to 2.) Building a new quasi-drab Kendall Square to 3.)

So I guess you can say government is now going for a twofer: Wrecking Scollay Square and wrecking the future waterfront. Thanks, mayor! ... New suggested name for Fan Pier: Fortress Pier. ... To bring this post full-circle back to ex-legislators: They're at the state college trough.
