it is sad this is resurfacing. It never really went away (As a grad student, I lived in Boston during the late 70s' when South Boston was integrated). Based on the reaction of Mayor Flynn and his homies in S. Boston, it could have been Mississippi. It was an eye opener to me having moved from my home in NJ. It could be better, but I agree it is better than many. Regards.
