Probably no coincidence that this developer's building was burned down on the day that his massacre of the land broke through to Boston Road.

Would the insurance company pay for the demo that was otherwise already planned if it was due to, say, a fire? Hmmmmm.

You're one of those sad bastids who's always complaining about taxes and guvmint waste, aren't you? No problem sending "them" out for a wild goose chase though, eh?

I'll investigate for you, go make a tin foil hat while you wait for the results....

Doubt it was some enviro-nut. They'd be doing him a favcor. He had to demolish it as part of that project and dispose of the materials, likely at a per-pound price.

Agreed. It would be insanely stupid of an opponent to give him this kind of free publicity. I'd sooner suspect the resident candidate for the free press, but I don't. He seems like a straight shooter and the circumstances strongly point elsewhere. The building has been in Westford for decades, until it was slated to be demo'd at a significant cost. No need to resurrect Dick Tracey for this one.

Anyone who thinks Jon did this doesn't know Jon. He is a real straight guy. Whether you like him or not, Robert Walker is not the type to do this either. He's wealthy enough that he doesn't even have to think about doing something like this. This little bit of foolishness is really an inconvenience for both these guys. They are both busy men and do not need the distraction. I hope they find whoever did this but it's doubtful.

somone who can't discuss the issues will sink

Hmmm, don't know any of these players, but the guy with the real problem is whoever is running that site. Seek professional help.
