You know, while I was in Boston I remember talking to this taxi driver and him telling me stories of Boston in the 50's and such. The Boston he remembers is gone, the tone in his voice just sounded so heartbroken. So in a way I understand the need for these guys, I just feel like they save some of the most random things that do not need protection. I agree that when the integrity of the location is in jeopardy, they should step in and not allow a cookie cutter, jack in the crack, mc-fast food building to go in its place. But should they really designate a building historic before because a man used to eat there?
